Background Reading: Ownership in the Hybrid City

Digital media technologies are becoming increasingly influential in daily urban life. How can we implement these technologies in such a way that they make and maintain the city as a liveable and vibrant environment? How can we best design urban areas where citizens feel at home, feel empowered to engage with shared issues and interests, and feel a sense of ‘ownership’ in these issues? In what ways can the e-culture sector contribute to bolstering a sense of ownership in urban society?

The study ‘Ownership in the Hybrid’ city explores the concept of ownership as a design approach for the contemporary city. This study was commissioned by Virtueel Platform and written by Michiel de Lange and Martijn de Waal from The Mobile City.
