The Role of Intermediaries in Designing Information Infrastructures in Strategic Niches: The Case of a Sustainable Mobility Infrastructure Experiment in Berlin

This paper demonstrates the importance of intermediaries in the design of Information Infrastructures (II) in strategic niches, where urban infrastructures are prototyped to enable transitions to sustainable infrastructure. It shows how existing approaches to the study of such experiments fail to effectively address the design and development of information technology within them. Given the path dependency of initial design decisions in IIs, this literature gap leads to an under-appreciation of the influences that shape urban II design in the long run.
