The You-City: Technology, Experience & Life on the Ground
by Jeff Ferzoco
A design sketch in the form of a personal essay, "The You-City" explores the near-future of American urban environments. Jeff Ferzoco pulls from his work as creative director in regional planning as well as his own experience as a gamer, social media-ite and city lover. Walking the reader through a New York City of the future, Ferzoco travels from the front door to the crosswalk to the market and back again, exploring the impact of new technologies, from radical data-sharing to alternative transportation to public gaming and the many ways individuals can plug into or disrupt new networked spaces. Its an informed and passionate perspective on the city, an extended meditation how technologies can transform urban life and, ultimately, redefine how we live together.
