From origin a city planner Roland always has had a fascination for the (social-)physical city and its past, present and future. Currently we see a whole new reality arising for the city due to the digital transformation. What does this do to this new city? And what kind of images are attached to this? What does this transformation do with the challenges cities are facing? And what is the role of the government in all this? How do we make sure that everybody can come along? Questions Roland tries to answer within the Digital City program of Rotterdam.
