With the world ravaged by the current pandemic, everything people knew about smart city design and urbanisation will change dramatically. In addition, cities will also face immense challenges that come with rapidly ageing societies, and those relating to mobility, sustainability, climate change and resiliency to outbreaks. Enterprises will discover a new approach to the study of the built environment, where design takes on an investigative and intervening role that purposefully interfaces amongst people, technologies and the city.

This series is a plenary on Smart & Liveable Cities, presented during the design-led segment, Catalysing Innovation with Design, on day 3 of the TechInnovation 2020 virtual conference. This was held as part of the week-long Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology (SWITCH) and Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF).

Programme:

Three presentations:

  • 2021: [y]OUR New World Order? – Chris Luebkeman
  • Reimagining City Life – Micah Kotch
  • Transforming Healthcare: Designing and Preparing Cities for Pandemics – Dr Upali Nanda

This event is organised by IPI Singapore as part of SWITCH.
Key Partner: Enterprise Singapore
Content Partner: DesignSingapore Council
Network Partner: Enterprise Europe Network

This event is also supported by the National Design Centre, and is part of the National Design Centre’s “A Future by Design” programme line-up for December 2020.
