The question that opens the second issue of the Cahiers of the Department of Architectural Planning, Design, and Technology is: Can the “smart” object, building, and city be – and on what conditions – tools that help people to live more “intelligently”? 

The issue thus aims to deal with and offer a critical discussion of the subject through three main perspectives - smart object, smart building, smart city - with a “transverse” view of and attention to the parties (societies, communities, and individuals we might call “smart people”) targeted by this idea, who use it and consume it, and who are the only ones who can actually achieve it.

Focusing on the “smart” phenomenon, a scientific report is requested on a planning, research, design, production, and consumption activity concerning:
cities and territories and their management and use;
• specific “smart” technologies (and/or materials) which enable new processes or trigger new consumption scenarios;
• the system of objects which, from the human body up to the city, become the facilitators of the technologies themselves, becoming their medium for users (human-machine interfaces)
• the social, cultural, and economic practices determined by and/or based on the exploitation of “smart” technologies; 

Editorial rules
• Each paper will be published in its original language (Italian, English); if written in Italian, an abstract by the author in English is required;.
The texts must be of the length indicated for each Section with a tolerance margin of just 1,500 characters above or below. Different lengths will make the paper subject to editing intervention;
Images (a maximum of 6 per article) may be provided by the author in a size suitable for printing (300dpi base, 10 cm minimum), and whether or not they will be published will be decided by the Editorial Board.
