CASA Future Cities and Digital Technologies Conference – Free Event – September 27th Print E-mail
Monday, 29 July 2013 06:39

Cities have always been places where new technologies are invented but as more and more of the world’s population is living in cities, it is ever more urgent to consider their future. Cities are also being reinvented using new digital technologies and this one day conference will explore how CASA at University College London is exploring the future city through big data, smart technologies, and new ideas about simulation and prediction. This conference will showcase a range of work dealing with digital futures based on using computers to measure, model and predict the future state of our town and cities using many examples drawn from London and beyond.

Held at the 300 seater Barbican Cinema One in London, the conference will deal with new ways of visualising cities in 3D using virtual realities, it will show how we are building an internet of things around which the city is being reinvented and it will explore how the prosperity of cities relates to their scale and size. A particular feature of the day will be a focus on new ways of exploring movement patterns in cities using data sets from smart cards, from open data sources and from new methods for crowdsourcing not only data but ideas for future cities.Registration is now open for this free one day event:

The Future Cities and Digital Technologies Conference is preceded by a day of free workshops at UCL.  Further details are available at:

What if London’s buildings grew according to the amount of data they generate? Stephan Hügel (@urschrei) and Flora Roumpani (@en_topia) two of our PhD students from The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London, have been working on a system to read in twitter data to CityEngine and link the geo locations to building outlines.

The video below is the first step in an approach to visualising an urban landscape using the objects that already exist in it; instead of abstract swirling points, bars, and artefacts hovering in the sky, the buildings themselves become the medium by which the data generated in and around them are made visible:
