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 Biennial 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.

THE SHENZHEN BI-CITY BIENNIAL OF URBANISM/ARCHITECTURE was founded in 2005 and is dedicated to the exploration of urban space in all its facets. Alternating between the cities of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, and with an ever-changing team of curators, it is a focal point for contemporary and future architecture.
