Student Workshop at TU Vienna
World on the move – Challenging the spatial aspects of relocation
The Inclusive Cities Graduation Studio will take part in the Second SCUPAD Student Workshop, in partnership with TU Vienna and TU Eindhoven.
The international student workshop in Vienna – following up the SCUPAD Congress in Salzburg – will focus on the understanding the dynamics, gaps and limitations of human displacement to cities around the world, and especially spatial impacts of displacement at the local level. The workshop will focus on the requirements, the creation and the activation of spaces needed to shape our cities and regions as places for integration, rather than separation and exclusion. In short, we shall try to understand how cities can contribute for socio-economic integration of newly arrived citizens.
We will work on concrete examples in the city of Vienna dealing with topics of affordable housing, public space and urbanisation in an international context. These topics will be discussed by interdisciplinary groups (e.g. urban and regional planners, social scientists, transport planners and architects) in site visits and round tables.
The main questions we wish to answer are: What can we do as urban planners and designers working for municipalities and regions to deal with growing influxes of migrants? How can we strengthen a positive attitude in the debate about immigration and integration? What’s the spatial contribution of spatial planning to a migrant-inclusive society?
Activities will include talks and lectures with planners, social scientists and others and an international design and planning workshop in a chosen area of the city of Vienna.
The workshop will be held at Technische Universität Wien, Vienna Austria, at the Department für Raumentwicklung, Infrastruktur- und Umweltplanung. The local contact is Univ. ass. pipl.-Ing., dr. Petra Hirschler.
