Cyborg City is a thesis project that explores the concept of cyborg urbanization, a phenomenon that merges human enhancement technologies with the urban environment.
The project is the result of extensive research, including scientific articles, theoretical texts and experimental case studies.
The goal is to provide meta-design tools to identify open-ended solutions to the challenges of the city of the future and act as guidelines for the development of participatory practices.
Cyborg City is a reality in which technology-enhanced individuals coexist with others who are not, in an environment that can dynamically adapt to any need.
Advanced technological solutions and data sharing between the city and its citizens can create a hybrid and dynamic urban system and promote advanced personalization of everyday spaces.
The bottom-up approach and the use of open-source logic allow citizens to directly influence the development of the city, breaking with traditional top-down models of urban planning.
Data play a crucial role in promoting collaboration among citizens in the urban environment. Technology, the cyborg and the virtual become central elements in the transformation of urban space, generating new ideas and solutions that reflect the needs and aspirations of citizens living in the city.
