Monu 12: Real Urbanism
Most of our cities are shaped by a particular set of values that does not necessarily lead to high quality urban spaces, but instead to scary, ethically unacceptable and distorted forms. To prevent our cities from turning into monstrous “Ideal Cities”, all parties involved in shaping cities – developers, municipalities and planners – have to accept their interdependencies, and try to understand the different interests of each party while daring to navigate into unknown territory. Texts by Jason Lee, Doreen Jakob, Mammoth, Karl Johann Hakken, Maximilian Mendel, Yim Dongwoo, MVRDV, and many others. Interviews with Magriet Smit, Bjarke Ingels, Andre Kempe.
