Event description
Seminar on Experimental Urbanism

About this Event

This second seminar of Eco-communities Seminar Series is structured around the concept of experimental urbanism as a way to understand and explore how eco-communities can reshape urban spaces. Conceptualising eco-communities as experiments enables the valuing of small-scale and everyday practices, but can also limit the way they are understood as being only discrete interventions into city life, rather than facilitating more fundamental shifts in urban governance and urban living (Voytenko et al.,2016). Therefore, this seminar seeks ask questions about eco-communities as broader contributors to debates in experimental urbanism (Martin et al.,2018).
