Monu 31: After Life Urbanism
New urban challenges and phenomena are emerging from recent changes in our society related to death and its consequences for cities and buildings. “After Life Urbanism” addresses the reengagement and coexistence with life and death, exploring what impacts such transformations might have in terms of spatial, cultural, social, environmental, and economic aspects. The topic includes a case for urban burial by Anya Domlesky, Miguel Candela’s images of families living in Manila’s cemeteries, life planning software developed by James Norris, Cameron Jamie’s photos of suburban Halloween decorations, virtual wakes on the internet, an interview with Karla Rothstein, and more.
