The notion of smart city has been known to many of its technological “smartness”. While technology leap has opened up many possibilities that offers a promising vision to future cities, it is the humanistic spirit at its core, driven by the needs and living experience of the citizens, that defines and informs how our future cities look like. Mr MK Leung, Director of Sustainability at Ronald Lu & Partners, will provide us a people-centric approach to the idea of smart city, where technology and urban design can work together for the betterment of urban life. He will offer some insights on how community engagement and public policy in data standardization can play a vital role in urban design and management for future cities.
