DeCoding the City: Reclaiming Spatial Production
Studio 15 will explore the notion of urban Codes to develop proposals of spatial production. By spatial production we mean the creation of new spaces, new activities and new constructions in cities, but also new practices, new social and political relationships, new networks and new identities. The work produced by the studio will critically question the current hyper-regulation of space and the production of architecture and urbanism, and search for tactics to reclaim the ‘right to the city’. This will be thought of from both the point of view of the citizen, their right to intervene and to make, and to occupy space, and the point of view of architecture, by questioning its role in the contemporary urban situation.
