OSCity is founded in 2013 by Mark van der Net - architect, urban planner and programmer - and operates on the overlap between technology and culture, the urban and the virtual. We create webplatforms, interactive installations, social experiments, dashboards, research-projects; both commissioned and unsolicited.
With the open source movement as inspiration OSCity aims to open up urban knowledge and invites many others to collaborate in search of the urban planning of the future.
