Title: Urban Acupuncture: Healing the City

Abstract:
In the last few years, since the Smart City concept appeared in our lives, we have been looking for a city that reveals intelligent but also gives the citizen the opportunity to deal with the city itself in a closer range. The search for the optimization of resources and the efficiency and control of facilities, made us forget many times the day-to-day life of the citizens. There are things in the city that are as important as these and that can be unveiled only from the street point of view. We introduce a new method to tackle the urban space solutions in the city. URBAN ACUPUNCTURE is an innovative approach that blends together URBAN HARDWARE and URBAN SOFTWARE to provide a PLUG AND PLAY interactive way to address our cities. BIRLOKI system offers a new way of thinking urban furniture. No doubt the future of urban elements should go in this direction in the coming decades. Interaction with our own personal devices has become familiar and we expect the same level of real-time personalization with the sphere of public objects on the streets. BIRLOKI system has been awarded first as a concept at the International Concept Design B_Awards (2010) and in 2012 it was selected as Finalist Innovative Initiative category in the Smart City World Congress Awards.
