2006. The Digital Mile was a major intervention proposed by the City of Zaragoza, Spain to better position its enterprises, institutions and citizens in the technological 21st century. A large stretch of land in the heart of the city was proposed for redevelopment as public and private space integrating digital technology with the built environment. Our team at MIT was asked to envision, design and propose program for this project.
My contribution included proposals for several built interventions and digital services to engage citizens in considering the potential of their role in the city through technology. Some of these proposals were refined and realized for a 2008 World Expo that took place in Zaragoza.
For the printed prospectus, I conceived and produced a series of cartoon scenarios illustrating these proposals.
