What effects does digitization have on architecture? What role does artificial intelligence play in designing urban spaces? And how does this change the lives of people in the city? The Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture 2019 addressed these questions and developed a multifaceted, multidisciplinary panorama of our present time and its visions of the future. The focus was on the new, omnipresent visibility of architectural spaces and their associated responsiveness. Individualized design strategies, altered forms of behavior, and new movements through urban space are encountered. Dystopias and utopias, chances and risks meet to draw a panorama of the city of tomorrow. This illustrated book compiles the contributions to this unique project and makes them hauntingly tangible, page by page.
