Daniel Giovannini Towards interaction-based urban design

Daniel Giovannini is completing his PhD in physics at the University of Glasgow. Aside from his research in quantum photonics, Daniel is devoted to popularising science and explaining complicated issues in an uncomplicated way for a variety of publications. He is also one of the organisers of the first Glasgow edition of the Pint of Science festival. Daniel’s reviews and creative writing have appeared for years in several well-known Italian webzines.

Daniel is also a member of the international group Spatial Intelligence Unit (SPIN). Formed as an academic research unit, SPIN is now focusing on finding new solutions in urban planning. Combining art and science, they look for ways to redesign the tangible and intangible networks that encompass our cities, in order to foster not only the development of beautiful urban spaces but also social processes.
