[urban interfaces] research group at Utrecht University


The Mobile City

The Mobile City is an independent research group founded in 2007 by Martijn de Waal and Michiel de Lange. The Mobile City investigates the influence of digital media technologies on urban life, and what this means for urban design and policy. How can we employ digital media technologies to make our cities more just, improve the quality of urban life, as well as make our cities more interesting places to live in?


We do independent research, consult, give lectures, organize events and workshops, and collaborate with organizations and individuals who share our interests in digital media and urban culture, from disciplines like architecture and urbanism, media, design, technology, and urban policy.
