We began the new graduation year at the studio with a workshop on Tuesday afternoon.
Following a brief presentation of the studio, students were given hands-on experience with the design process used in Planning Complex Cities.
Collecting student’s observations of disparities and conflicts arising from the distribution of spatial resources across communities and territories in a first round we tried to explore how synergizing spatial interventions and governance action could tackle these challenges and to transform these places in socially just and environmentally sustainable places.
We debunked the myth that municipalities, national governments, and even international organizations have unlimited power and emphasized the importance of caring for non-human actors such as dolphins.
These discussions kicked off an exciting new year of planning complex cities and regions in transition!
