Chapter 10: Exploring the relationship between smart cities and spatial planning: star cases and typologies
The smart city aspects that tackle physical structure and form, such as spatial planning, are largely understudied. Out of the currently existing smart cities, most are insufficiently adapted to their physical and sociotechinical context. Addressing these shortcomings, this chapter identifies the possible classifications and typologies of spatial planning for smart city development by means of case study research. The research focuses on ‘star’ cases of smart cities, particularly Vienna, Thessaloniki, Stockholm, India’s smart cities, the Multimedia Super Corridor, Heraklion and Amsterdam. The authors identify two typologies of spatial planning in a smart city framework. The first one is based on urban functions and land uses, the overarching district character and the technical infrastructure that is aimed to be enhanced. The second typology is based on the spatial scale and includes the following classifications: national scale, regional – metropolitan scale, municipality – local scale and distributed or project-based scale.
