The variety of topics, approaches and examples which describe, analyze or challenge sensitive balance between cities and innovation(s) has certainly revealed a genuine nature of contemporary urban world. The whirl of flows, influences, paradigms and concepts instigate various reactions, creativity and inventions, but the quality and outcome of proposed solutions have to be evaluated properly. Innovations in/for the city are an inseparable part of the urban evolution and only through necessary iterations they could gain their actual urban significance. However, in some cases the success of the solutions proposed has become a paragon which ensures their further global applicability. Let us try something new?
