About us

Test and explore transformative techniques and practices of urban futuring (ToUF) at the intersection between visions for future urban places, new technologies and infrastructures.


Generate new knowledge about the forms and dynamics of smart urbanism and their socio-technical implications.


Unveil to what measure cities can be understood through sensorial data, how does software interact with space in daily urban life at the ‘real time city’ and to what measure they contribute to an improved and more efficient urban management.
