The City of Brno engages with students on the future of its smart city district

18 September 2019

The City of Brno held the international student competition MUNISS 2019, which this year focused on the future smart development of Brno’s replication area Špitalka. One topic of the competition was the analysis of smart solutions and their impact on the quality of life in the area.

An interdisciplinary group of students were asked to propose and assess ten specific smart solutions, technologies and practices, which can affect the model of the future smart district Špitalka. The solutions had to address six aspects of what it means to be a “smart city” as defined in research made by SIX Research Centre at Brno University, a local partner of RUGGEDISED in BRNO.

The basis for the competition was to examine the winning proposal from the architect agency Aulík Fišer, which was made for the International Urban Idea Design Competition for the Špitálka area. Students had to assess the social impact, environmental analysis and analysed specific solutions from RUGGEDISED such as the Pavement heat/cold collector. Important parts of the competition were also the breakdown of financial structure and proposals for how to communicate about the solutions.
