The Internet and its connected technologies is rapidly changing how we plan and what we plan for. Explore how the Internet is reshaping cities and what the planning profession can do to thoughtfully incorporate technology’s widespread influence into thriving places.
This session will accomplish 3 main objectives:
1. Understand the Internet's influence in shaping the built environment, with particular focus on a city's economy and transportation network (ie autonomous vehicles).
2. Examine which aspects of our planning and zoning are prepared and ill-equipped to fully capitalize on the impact of the Internet or effectively safeguard ourselves from certain aspects of it. Identify ways we can avoid planning for a future that simply won't exist in its current form (ie around the car).
3. Establish a framework of development patterns that cities can use for building neighborhoods in a web-enriched future.
