What do we know about the cities of the future?

What will be the role of the Generation Z in designing the cities of the future? And the role of technology? The pandemic has dictated the rhythms between design and the citizenry. We will discuss these and other questions at the round table ‘Live Research: Who is Designing the Cities of 2050?’ within the Barcelona Design Week City Festival.

Jorge Márquez, the Head of Experience Design Europe of Everis in Europe and the moderator of the round table, explains that the activity will revolve around two major axes: person and space, “debating on the various aspects that impact on this relationship, such as the social, economic or urbanistic changes.”

The discussion will have the participation of Isabella Longo (Project Director in BIT Habitat), Mariella Brito (Service Coordinator in Economia Humana), Anna Torrent (Architect), Marc Palomar (Social transformation activist) and Elisenda Saborit (PS&H Business Manager at Everis NTT Data).

In addition, “it will be a participatory format in which everyone will be able to express their own point of view, including the public, and we will draw conclusions in real time that will help us to understand better the way we relate with cities and how technology can help us to improve them,” Márquez adds.
