Published at: 27 June 2014

During the 15th & 16th of January 2015, the 13th meeting of AESOP's thematic group on Complexity and Planning was held in Tampere. The event was hosted by the School of Architecture of the Tampere University of Technology. The participants discussed the challenges and opportunities of the digitalization of cities and explore how complex theories can offer a source of inspiration for enhancing our understanding of this digitalization process and its effects on architecture, planning and governance.

Prof. Itzhak Benenson gave an intriguing keynote on the consequences of big data and we were pleased to have him with us. A special word of gratitude goes to School of Architecture of the TUT and in particular Jenni Partanen for organizing this interactive and inspiring event.
