Cécile Maisonneuve, President of La Fabrique de la Cité, met with Carlo Ratti, architect, founder of the Carlo Ratti Associati agency and director of the Senseable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). From his open-source project of containers converted into intensive care units (ICU) to the use of data for the common good, Carlo Ratti invites us to get back to basics.
