Digital age impacts infrastructure too


DESIGNERS WILL be urged to think about the impact of the digital age on the development of infrastructure at the annual Urban Design Alliance lecture being held during Urban Design Week. Dean of architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor William Mitchell will explain how designers and planners need to consider new building types and development patterns - both their desirable and undesirable aspects - and the emerging social, economic and cultural implications of new technology. Tickets for the lecture - 'The impact of technology on cities' cost £6 from the ICE on (020) 7665 2221 and the event takes place at 6pm on 17 September at Great George Street.
