The urban neighbourhood is where we can tackle many of our current problems. What role can technology play at this local level? How can we apply this human scale to our social technology?

Andreas focuses on where design, cities, and code meet. He is a founding member of both “Animal Design Studio”, a strategic design practice revolving around sense-making, and “FragNebenan”, a hyperlocal social network for urban neighborhoods in Vienna. Other projects include “Neighbourgood”, a book that looks at how urban communities are shaping their immediate surroundings, and “Transformap”, which maps urban commons and socio-economic innovation. Questions driving his work include the role of technology at the local level and how a human scale can be applied to social technology.
