"Smartness" has become a buzzword - from industrial context to the design of individual technologies to larger-scale urban design. "Smart cities" are booming everywhere, "Smart Living" stands for the living of the future. Is it really just about technology-enabled resource efficiency? Or not also about participation, shared economy and democratized decision-making processes?

These and other considerations are the focus of the panel with architect Markus Pernthaler, Hannes Walter (Evolaris) and others.
