Conscious Cities is a new field of research and practice focusing on people-centric environments that are aware and responsive; using data analysis, AI, technology, and cognitive science in design.

The concept emerged out of ‘A Manifesto for Conscious Cities’ co-written by architect Itai Palti and neuroscientist Prof. Moshe Bar in 2015. It was quickly followed by the first conscious cities conference in London, organised by Museum of Architecture and The Cube.

Our events and publications aim to encourage novel methods of observation, drivers for design, methodologies for the production of space, and changes in policy and governance.

The Conscious Cities Journal was launched in November, 2016 and is published as an open-source quarterly. The second Conscious Cities conference was held in London on 3rd May, 2017.
