16:00 30 minutes presentation Stage 1
Juanita Devis Imec City of Things

Cities are complex organisms in constant transformation, made of distinct networks and physical elements. Most importantly, they are the main scenario where we live our life.

This talk presents the City of Things CityFlows project in Antwerp, which combines urban planning and technology to investigate and visualize the flows of people, bikes, cars, public transportation in the urban environment. In this way we can better understand how people are dwelling the space and how we can create better cities for the future.
