La ciencia de las ciudades desde lo cotidiano

How and why people use public spaces, gather in intersections, make use of public transport, meet friends, look for the sun or organise in common,…hide a large amount of blind code for the most optimistic ICT-driven smart city visions. In fact, Urban Code is nothing more but an updated exploration in a certain neighbourhood based on some of the “usual suspects” of any bibliography exploring city life: A pattern language, by Christopher Alexander, The death and life of great American cities, by Jane Jacobs, The image of the city, by Kevin Lynch or The social life of small urban spaces, by William H. Whyte. And, even though authors claim that these observations hold true for any cityscape, some of them are particular consequences of the specificity of this neighbourhood.
