From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Media City is a broad term that may refer to a diversity of phenomena, from specific real estate developments like MediaCityUK and Dubai Media City, to sociological/theoretical frameworks for the contemporary information- and media-rich urban environment (e.g. the work of Manuel Castells), to an EU-funded research project based in the departments of Architecture, Media and Urban Sociology at the Bauhaus University, Weimar, Germany.[1]

According to Shannon Mattern, the Media City "is typically presented by scholars and designers as a product of modern times and modern technology — a spatial construction that came into being with the rise of photography and film and is evolving into our sentient cities of tomorrow." [2]
