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.
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."
