Bristol becoming a ‘smart city’

How can Smart City technologies scale up beyond short-lived pilot interventions? How can they be citizen-centred, sustainable and inclusive rather than a technology push? Together with KWMC and Bristol City Council, we have developed a framework for running inclusive, sustainable and scalable, community-driven data and technology projects. The City Commons Framework provides a methodology to catalyse a new wave in Smart City design that challenges existing power structures, amplifies the range of available solutions to urban issues and therefore creates value and opportunities for all.
