Interview with the curator of the exhibition Scott Burnham

Curated by urban strategist and writer Scott Burnham, Reprogramming The City explored a new paradigm of urban creativity and resourcefulness. Here, the hardware of the city was treated as a platform of opportunity, and infrastructure not as the end result of a previous creative process, but the beginning of a new one, creating better cities for people.The city holds a vast amount of untapped ability. The structures, surfaces, objects and systems that underpin its daily operations have the potential to do more: to perform an alternate function, to encourage human interaction or assume an entirely new role in the mechanism of the city.
