Abstract [en]

Today, smart cities are being realised through hundreds of projects around the world. Information and communication technologies are rapidly being woven into new and existing urban policies, agendas, narratives and visions by a wide range of local authorities, small and medium enterprises, utility providers, corporations and civil society groups. This book provides the first collection of evidence on how smart urbanisation is being realised in 21 cities through detailed empirical and comparative accounts. The contributions reveal how the rhetoric of smart cities is gradually being transformed into a range of realities through simultaneous processes of grounding and contextualising, integrating and aligning, contradicting and challenging, and experiencing and encountering. The diversity of approaches to smart urbanisation are resulting in different ways of governing and experiencing the city of the future, and will have both anticipated and unanticipated outcomes for all urban actors.
