Interactive Cities -
What's Next?

November 1st 2019

How is technology supposed to make our lives ‘better’ when everyone has a different (and conflicting) idea of what ‘better’ is?

People have been talking about 'Smart cities' for years. But what does this actually mean? How is technology supposed to make our lives ‘better’ when everyone has a different (and conflicting) idea of what ‘better’ is?

Join Frost*collective as we unpack ‘smart cities’ and find out how interactive urban environments can work for everyone by putting people’s needs first.

Frost*collective is at the forefront of the changing face of cities with our award-winning work in place visioning, smart wayfinding and destination branding.

The Collective has forged a new partnership with one of the world’s leading urban technology firms, Umbrellium, to further its leadership in the convergence of technology and place.

deFrost* #55 will be an insightful look at current trends, with Umbrellium Founding Partner Usman Haque exploring the way places and technology can co-exist to shape smart communities. This will be followed by a forum and Q&A led by Vince Frost. 

Join us at 6pm on 12th November 2019 for a fascinating evening that will set the scene for next generation thinking for anyone involved in the planning of spaces including architects, urban planners, developers, government and designers.
