The Industrious City Urban Industry in the Digital Age


Hosoya, Hiromi; Schaefer, Markus; Aerni, Philipp (2021). The Industrious City Urban Industry in the Digital Age. In: Hosoya, Hiromi; Schaefer, Markus. The Industrious City Urban Industry in the Digital Age. Zurich: Lars Müller Publishers, 105-115.

Abstract

Cities have always been places where commerce and production, working and living are physically and functionally integrated. Only with the rise of industry have zoning regulations been introduced to separate these functions in space. However, what is the role of such regulations when industry is digitized, increasingly emission-free, and based on innovation more than mass production? How should working and living be combined to make mobility and energy consumption become more sustainable? And what are the opportunities in creating urban areas based on social equity and resilience, in a volatile world characterized by digital disruption, migration and demographic shifts?
