Meeting with Carlo Ratti

Today I had a telephonic conversation with Carlo Ratti. He started with some advices on the research proposal I was developing and he said that it is not clear at glance from what other research project differ and in what. At the moment he is involved in a project at MIT. He is working at the SENSEable City Laboratory. He is carrying out a research for Vodafone to try to understand how people use urban space using the data of radio saturation.

At his lab he is following three directions: (a) describe urban space using new media; (b) Use the outcomes of these new representations for designing activities; (c) Understanding how the city is going to change according to this new technology.
