The Future of the Human Relationship with the City

A recent episode of the Australian radio program Future Tense examines how humans interact with the city and how it will likely change in the future.

"In this program we look at the way we engage with the city. What do we need to take into account to ensure greater harmony between our future needs as individuals and the needs of the metropolis."

The show looks at the city, "its location, how it now senses and interacts with us, and how we can start understanding it in a more meaningful context."

The program includes interviews with Adam Greenfield, author of Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing, architect Bert de Muynck, Professor Richard Florida, and Dr Tony Fry of the Design Futures Program, at Griffith University.
