Rethinking Space

SCIBE Conference Poster_2013

Archiving the City is coming to London!

From February 26 – 28, The University of Westminster School of Architecture and the Built Environment is hosting a conference called: Within the Limits of Scarcity: Rethinking Space, City and Practices.

The conference is organized as part of a new multi-university initiative called Scarcity and Creativity in the Built Environment (SCIBE), and is focused on bringing together thinkers from around the world to explore how conditions of scarcity in urban areas might prompt creative responses from designers, architects, planners and how “design-led actions” might improve the conditions of living in cities.

Keynote speakers are Jeremy Till, Ole Bouman, Camillo Boano, Pier Vittorio Aureli, Erik Swyngedouw & Ana Paula Baltazar.

I will be presenting a paper on Wednesday, Feb 28, called “We must begin to build for ourselves a city in which we want to live.” Most of the Wednesday program focuses on design & urbanism in Eastern Europe during the socialist and post-socialist eras, and also features interesting papers from Christina E. Crawford, Michael Klein, Mejrema Zatric and Sante Simone.

The full conference program, is now available. The conference is free and open to the public, and you may register online.
