City of knowledge

Creative Class includes scientists, engineers, architects, educators, writers, artists, and entertainer. They are found as those whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology, and innovative content. Richard Florida and Charles laundry are two of theorists whose research as bin primarily focused on this sector of contemporary societies. In general, this group shares common characteristics, such as creativity, individuality, diversity, and merit, and despite their differences, they have a lot in common.  Many developed countries have been involved in organizing creative class to facilitate their contributions to urban development and socio-economic progress of cities. This project is trying to apply the theory and practice pertaining to Creative Class and their relation to urban settings for Iran as a developing country which needs new creative content, and suffering from creative class immigration and emigration.  The goal is to propose ideas to evolve this group from an amorphous group of self-directed high-achieving individuals, into a responsible, more cohesive group interested in the common good. This is achieved through mechanisms of providing them with spatial requirements of living, working and co-working, researching and socializing.
