How can industrial production be reintegrated into the urban fabric in a post-digital world
Research from Harvard's Graduate School of Design addresses the issues
Cities have always been places where commerce and production, working and living, are
physically and functionally integrated. Only with the rise of industry have zoning regulations been
introduced to separate these functions. But what role do these regulations play when industry is
digitised, increasingly emission-free and shifting away from mass production What will the ideal
mix of working and living be in the future In a world characterized by digital disruption, migration
and demographic shifts, how do we build cities based on social equity and resilience
Based on interdisciplinary urban design research undertaken at Harvard University's Graduate
School of Design, the Zurich-based architecture studio Hosoya Schaefer presents The Industrious
City: Urban Industry in the Digital Age. Investigating how production can be reintroduced into the
urban fabric, this book explores how production, services, leisure and living might come together
in a future integrated city.
