For a typical smart city many IoT (Internet of Things) architectures have been proposed to integrate the various ICT Solutions. Since there are many perspectives, the emphasis and the design of each architecture vary. So at the moment there is no standard architecture. The best approach is to adapt architecture for its intended use. Most of the current IOT architectures are service centered. After surveying literature, there exists a gap in a user centered approach with intelligent edge devices. We propose Aura Minora: a novel architecture for IOT based on a bottom-up approach. Our approach in this paper is to see, how this user centric architecture would help end users as well as the smart city governing body to use existing Internet infrastructure to provide services. We also focus on user privacy and security aspect within this architecture. We further discuss the various views like informational, functional and deployment view of our architecture.
