Abstract: In an economic recession and austerity scenario new strategies are emerging that seek to rethink the city through a technologically mediated urbanism. Strategies such as the smart city or alternatives proposed by the new governments of candidatures for citizen confluence in Spain agree on the transformative role that information and communication technologies (ICT) can have in implementing new city models. However, we detect the lack of studies that explore, critically, some of its implications. This article examines these implications through the development of the smart city concept in Spain in a context of austerity. From a critical reading of this concept, the article reflects on the technology-city dichotomy to debate how to transform and manage the city of the 21st century beyond the focus on purely technical issues (sensorization, apps, technological platforms, etc.).
