In 2008, the earth’s human population became more urban than rural for the first time in history. While this reality is good for the health of our biosphere, urban communities will need to adapt from their 20th century infrastructural strategies to emerging social and ecological networks that can sustain this population growth.


At DS+R, we are interested in identifying new opportunities for productive relationships between public space, local ecology, and emerging technologies that act as a catalyst for this necessary adaptation in the existing urban fabric. We have been fortunate enough to collaborate on projects that test these interests in a meaningful way and will discuss some of our ongoing experimentation.
