Abstract Summary
Smart Cities depend on strategies and solutions enabled by ICTs involving directly citizens, local governments and communities. Aim of the paper is to understand the particular challenges and potentials of new technologies and its applications in an urban setting while surveying urban innovation units and living labs. The paper uses the concept of smart cities as a mean and manner of urban future. Moreover, it examines the change in the concept and to find out cooperation between local governments and living labs in two different extents. One is to determine the affect of new technologies on city planning and its users and other is to find out social movements that might bring them together. In addition, this paper analyses a set of five key principles that define the concept of living labs. Using these five principles, organizers and volunteers in Basaksehir Living Lab in Istanbul (Turkey) were interviewed and most relevant projects and implementations were evaluated to indicate how well planning practice advances smart planning and projects that contribute to the local development.
