The City of Exchange:  Urban Design, Stamford, CT.    Critic:  Sunil Bald     Project Team: Caitlin Gucker-Kanter, Nicholas Kehagias   The studio brief called for a new urban plan for Stamford, Connecticut. The design seeks to understand Stamford as a city of systems, whose inherent potential is currently underutilized. Two new data centers provide a state-of-the-art digital framework around which the city can develop. Existing systems are reconfigured and new systems are established in order to take advantage of Stamford’s digital infrastructure. Related industries such as data-processing, venture capital and agricultural laboratories plug in to the system, dynamically exchanging data and waste products such as heat to produce a diverse digital ecosystem that challenges the convential reading of Stamford as a city composed of isolated office buildings.
