digitalSTRUCTURES: Data and Urban Strategies of the Civic Future ponders “If our everyday objects are digital and no longer physical, how does it challenge ecological questions? How does this affect the future of urban living?” The book also explores the relationship between the digital and physical through the use of print text, mixed reality, and augmented reality. This raises further provocations about how digital properties intersect with the physical world, and what this might mean for the future of publishing and information exchange.


Wendy W Fok (she/them), trained as an architect, is interested in design, technology, and creative solutions for the built environment. They have experience in Product Development and Program Management from Zero to Launch, Design-Build, Manufacturing, Hardware/Software, and Digital Fabrication.


Fok holds a Doctor of Design from the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) in partnership with the Harvard Law School, obtained a Master of Architecture and Certification of Urban Policy/Planning from Princeton University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with a Concentration in Economics (Statistics) from Barnard College, Columbia University.
