The idea of the Creative City has encouraged planners to develop cultural policies to support creative economies, city branding, urban identity and urban quality. On the other side, the concept of Smart City introduced the possibility to create, collect and analyse data to inform decisions on cities. The two city agendas overlap in different ways,...
Good public space is an inherent part of liveable cities. However, due to the complexity and ambiguity of the concept of public space quality, capturing essential characteristics to assess the quality of public space in a quantitative framework is not straightforward. In this paper, we introduce the Public Space Quality Index (PSQI), a Multi-Criter...
In this article, the challenges of realising e-participatory projects in urban planning are described. A participatory case study in Singapore serves as the basis for their presented conclusions. The researchers used a map-based e-participation tool to collect design proposals from participants for the planning site. The user feedback for the tool...
This paper discusses the design of an online digital participation campaign, developed as an academic research project in Singapore. In order to develop appropriate exercises which fitted the tool and the context, we addressed several questions: how can online participation tools maintain a negotiation and education power? What data generated by ci...
This article investigates the intersection and convergence of Smart Cities and Creative Cities that emerge with the availability of social media data, technology—smart technologies—and the shifting mode of cultural production—creative economies—forming a new nexus of Smart-Cultural Cities.
