Places of exchange through inquiry into a proactive architectural praxis

Gitte Juul

How - and with what material and immaterial means can we work with public space – and how does it affect individuals and society? This presentation will explore how urban planning can create processes that are not only about realizing master plans in fixed phases, but processes that are embracing the complexity of situations by daring to involve many different actors. It is drawn towards small details and finds interest in how minor-visible elements and immaterial forces can activate spaces and how the ground can be prepared for accommodating ideas and engagement from citizens by designing small supporting infrastructures.
