COMMONING  Urban Mutations on the Edge, FS 2017

 

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 2017 semester will continue to view architecture, urbanization, and territory through the lens of ‘commoning’. While ‘commoning’ usually refers to self-organized management of common natural resources (such as forests, water or pastures), we attempt to understand how the practice of commoning can be applied in an urban and architectural context and thus for common cultural resources. What are commoning practices within architecture and urban design? What are urban or architectural commons? Who creates them? How are they managed? What conditions must be met to establish such commons and the related practices of commoning?

 

Wahlfacharbeit/Thesis Elective – The Urban Mutations on the Edge Thesis Elective 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.
