Supported by the latest flows of creativity and innovation, contemporary cities have gradually become multileveled interfaces between material and digital realms of urban reality. The process of technological upgrading continuously reinforces an assemblage of generated spatial segments, providing a connecting web for redefined urban landscapes. Composed of tangible and intangible urban segments, they are exposed to numerous environmental and social challenges of the 21st century - from global warming to social injustice and inequality. Searching for the best solutions, the concept of digital city and the framework of creative city have been highlighted and analyzed by different authors, but their efficiency and success have to be tested and verified by generations to come. Considering the current condition, this paper will inter-relate the digital and creative/innovative urban platforms in order to define possible areas of multidisciplinary crossover. The merging of ideas and... tools, perceived as a new opportunity for increasing the resilience and adjustability of urban environment in the age of climate change, will be discussed on a level of information networks and their influence on urban space and community.
