Ramon Gras presents insights from “City Science: Performance Follows Form” at the Urban AI event

Ramon Gras Alomà recently presented insights from the new Aretian Urban Analytics and Design book “City Science: Performance Follows Form”, published by Actar, at the first Urban AI conference held at the prestigious UCL Bartlett School of Architecture and Urban Design. During this conference on AI and Urban Design, the different speakers explored how artificial intelligence can help urban designers shape better, more sustainable and inclusive cities. This conference created a much-needed link between academia and industry which allowed people in the field to meet with other urban experts and discuss novel advances, methodologies and technologies.

During this conference, Ramon Gras Alomà presented key learnings from the new Aretian book “City Science: Performance Follows Form”. It presents an extended study of 100 urban environments and metropolitan areas throughout the World, across the 5 different continents. This study replicates in a three-dimensional manner the morphological features of cities and metropolitan areas, as well as the economic and human systems that inhabit them. This research allows us to compare and contrast - in terms of urban performance - not only the quality of the architectural and urban design characteristics and civil engineering infrastructures, but also the impact that those systems have on the quality of life of citizens. This book answers some of the most crucial questions in modern urbanism such as: to what extent are cities able to provide 15-minute city standards? How are cities able to provide and shape a prosperous knowledge economy? As well as a good and efficient intermodal mobility and transportation system? Among other important urban topics.

Urban AI is a Think Tank that federates an international ecosystem and a multidisciplinary community. They propose ethical modes of governance and sustainable uses of urban Artificial Intelligence. To accomplish this objective, they carry out research (white papers, trend books, analyses, ...) and experiments around this concept, as well as organize events centered around Urban Design and Artificial Intelligence. Urban AI also aims to be a space for exchange and meeting, a place of debate that welcomes a diversity of points of view around AI and the future of cities and a think tank that helps citizens, public decision makers and corporations to embrace Urban AI.
