The chapter traverses an array of urban sensing and smart cities projects to consider how this emerging and speculative field is materializing. Chapter seven focuses specifically on questions of governance and power as they are distributed through the new milieus and environments of smart cities. Using the notion of “environmentality” to describe these spatial power dynamics, the chapter asks how visions for an efficient and sustainable city might delimit the urban practices and modes of citizenship that are made possible.

Keywords:   governance, power, citizenship, urban sustainability, efficiency, urban sensing, smart cities, environmentality
