Reprogramming the City is a 214-page exploration of innovative ways existing urban infrastructure and other elements are being reused and repurposed for new use in cities around the world.
From billboards in Lima, Peru, that now generate fresh drinking water to bus stops in northern Sweden transformed to boost the mental health of commuters during dark winter months, Reprogramming the City reveals the hidden abilities contained in existing city structures to improve life for urban residents.
Featuring over 40 examples from 17 countries, Reprogramming the City shows the potential of looking at everyday urban objects and asking, “What if they did more than their original purpose?”
