چکیده: 

Objectives: This article argues that unless we understand the context in which we aim to build smart cities, we may fail to develop smart cities that are workable and sustainable.‎  Prior work: there is a wealthy body of knowledge on the why, what and how of smart cities, however they do not address the actual needs of the citizens of every city.‎ To make the smart cities solution frameworks work in different cities, we need to tailor these frameworks to the actual needs and constraints of the cities.‎ Approach: To address this gap, this article proposes a contextual participatory approach and demonstrates how to use this approach to conduct smart city projects that address real-life problems and generate workable and sustainable solutions.‎ 
This study explains why one size smart solution does not fit all cities' problems and delivers a prompt guideline on how to uncover the actual needs of a city and to deliver feasible solutions that make the city smart(er).‎ Results: To build smart cities we need to conceptualize the why, what, and how of smart city considering the actual needs of the citizens in a participatory manner.‎ To get the citizens engaged in the building process of the smart city we need to get them in some real-life situations then expose them to well-constructed questions.‎ Implications: this approach can be of value to researchers and practitioners who are seeking insights on the concept and practice of smart cities regardless of where they live.‎ If employed correctly, this approach promises results, i.e.‎ smarter cities.‎ Value: It generates insightful and practical knowledge on the actual needs of the citizens and the workable and sustainable solutions.‎ The smart cities built by this approach will bring more wealth, ease and happiness to the life of the citizens.‎
