Contemporary view on Smart City is very much static and infrastructure-centric, focusing on installation and subsequent management of Edge devices and analytics of data provided by these devices. While this still allows a more efficient management of city's infrastructure, optimizations and savings in different domains, the existing architectures are currently designed as single-purpose, vertically-siloed solutions. This effectively hinders an active involvement of a variety of stakeholders (e.g., citizens and businesses) who naturally form part of the city's ecosystem and have an inherent interest in jointly coordinating and influencing city-level activities towards a common benefit. This paper presents a value-driven architecture and the defining properties of the envisioned Smart City, characterized by complex coordinated activities involving the City's services, stakeholders and their devices. We look at existing foundational technologies for provisioning, coordination and controllability of said activities and discuss the required alignment steps towards the fulfillment of the stated vision.
