My research addresses the intersection of two concepts: urban transformation and place making. Firstly, concerning Urban transformation, there is the crisis of the city that has created vacant and underused spaces. These areas invite interventions from the local communities and bottom-up solutions to real, local and social problems. Secondly, regarding the relation between people and surroundings, I consider place making that is a process intrinsically connected with socio-spatial relations of a community. In my thesis digital transformation is the interpretation key of the two concepts, technologies, new media and the increased interaction between local actors. The aim of this project is to verify the role of internet technology and social media in the process of place making. As part of the study there will be an interrogation about the social media: how digital networks changed the relations of space with the general public?

Abstract

My research addresses the intersection of two concepts: urban transformation and place making. Firstly, concerning Urban transformation, there is the crisis of the city that has created vacant and underused spaces. These areas invite interventions from the local communities and bottom-up solutions to real, local and social problems. Secondly, regarding the relation between people and surroundings, I consider place making that is a process intrinsically connected with socio-spatial relations of a community. In my thesis digital transformation is the interpretation key of the two concepts, technologies, new media and the increased interaction between local actors. The aim of this project is to verify the role of internet technology and social media in the process of place making. As part of the study there will be an interrogation about the social media: how digital networks changed the relations of space with the general public?
