Solving Urban Planning Problems With Digital Collaboration

Digital technology brings new possibilities for solving problems in urban planning but is it enough? Read the interview with Antti Jogi Poikola – an expert in digital collaboration and urban development.

Urban development is a complex process where scientific facts mix with a wide range of stakeholder interests. It is not uncommon for urban projects to stall because of irreconcilable differences between communities. This is bad for society because a lot of resources are put on efforts that eventually have no outcome in real life. Digital technology brings new possibilities for improving the process but is it enough? Could we change our behavior in order to make the creation of built environments more user-centered and efficient? With the help of Miska Knapek I had the chance to interview Antti Jogi Poikola, an expert in digital collaboration and urban development. I will publish his interview in a series of blog posts linked below.
