DEGROWTH  Urban Mutations on the Edge, FS 2016

 

Lecture Series – The Urban Mutations on the Edge seminar is composed of a series of public lectures focusing on the political economy of architecture and territory, addressing the dynamic forces that shape the built environment and our conception of the city. The Spring 2016 theme ‘Degrowth’ will discuss the physical results of the dominant paradigm of economic growth. Not simply seen as the opposite of growth, or solely placed within an ecological discourse pertaining to limited natural resources, we understand the notion of Degrowth as a lens through which we can critically reflect on established practices, as well as explore alternative proposals how we could produce, organize, and design our built environment beyond the given logics of linear and unlimited growth. 

 

Wahlfacharbeit – The Urban Mutations on the Edge Wahlfacharbeit is an introduction to urban research, how to conduct it, and why it is a useful undertaking. The basis of the course is the Urban Mutations on the Edge lecture series. Additional meetings are held on select Thursdays. The aim is to produce a publication-quality scientific article of approximately 2500 words. Students typically work in teams of two.
