Design for networked cities and citizens.

  New York,  United States    Website
We are a New York City-based urban systems design practice, with a human-centered orientation and an ambition to improve the quality of metropolitan experience worldwide.

Urbanscale was founded by Adam Greenfield in 2010 to bring a human-centered perspective to the design of products, services, and spatial interventions wherever networked information technology intersects the urban condition, for the benefit of everybody who lives, works, strives, and dreams in the world’s cities.

We work with municipal, public-sector and private organizations on one-off and long-term consulting projects, as well as developing our own products. Our expertise in interaction and interface design, ethnography, graphic design, typography, cartography and software development is complemented by extensive experience working in North America, Europe and Asia.

@Kevindoylejones If you're OK with superficial analysis, though, by all means feel free to use the Gartner material in your work.

@Kevindoylejones Saying a piece of work falls short of the standards it should have upheld is not the same thing as "trashing" it.

@Kevindoylejones Did you read the report we linked? It was superficial, uncritical, platitudinous and simplistic.

@Kevindoylejones Not sure what your point is. If you're bursting the silly consultancy balloon, what can we say? We agree.

@gidiperna That's too bad. It's an incoherent notion — intellectually bankrupt and ethically untenable.

@gidiperna We explicitly do not believe in the "smart city."

@jdevoo Please don't imply that we endorse the Gartner piece!

Di Maio's is the kind of desperate shoring up of a consensus normality in the face of new potentials that must be challenged at all points.

We agree, smart-city hype is just that. But who's Andrea Di Maio to tell us what the "real problem" is, or what's "reasonable" to demand?

The level of analysis Gartner brings to bear in recent work on "smart cities" is just laughable. People pay for this? http://t.co/2QjCAEtl

Any interest in a Parrot-based Drone Urbanism hackshop? Show of hands.
