The background: 

Because of today’s digital possibilities, we propose that we can transform how we own, share and build our cities. This opens a
completely new potential to empower citizens and support more cohesive societies.

The Boring Revolution Lab in BLOXHUB, Copenhagen, wish to explore how we use this enormous potential and how we rethink the practices for urban development in the best possible way. Our goal is to change the built environment and the industries connected to it from design thinking to understanding the combined value and impact these industries can create.

The Lab is hosted by BLOXHUB and created in association with Dark Matter Labs and Smith Innovation.
