The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) invites you to the Responsive Cities Symposium 2023. This year’s edition focuses on “Collective Intelligence Design”, within the framework of the Green Skills for Cities (G4C) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and coordinated by IAAC’s Advanced Architecture Group.

Responsive Cities 2023 Symposium delves into the emerging paradigm of collective intelligence in city making processes. As cities continue to evolve in complexity and interconnectedness, and in the context of the climate emergency, embracing new forms of intelligence that go beyond human perspectives becomes the cornerstone for the future of urbanity.


Date: 27th and 28th of November, 2023
Location: Disseny Hub Barcelona
