How will smart communities be built in the future?

#SwissTouch table held an other outstanding event in Great Hall of the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The distinctive D.C. building was the perfect place to host the event, where Swiss and American experts from the ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich), the D.C. Office of Planning, and the National Capital Planning Commission sat around the table to discuss the topics of community building and creative place making. Among the questions considered were: How will smart communities be built in the future? Where will building in D.C. evolve? And finally: What is the future of memorials? With the help of concrete examples from Switzerland and D.C., our panelists invited the public to imagine the technical and sociological possibilities associated with community building and creative place making in the future.
