Timescapes of Urban Change
Tue 29 November 2016, 18:30 – 20:15 GMT
This event is now full. It will be streamed live on Facebook. Please go to the Urban Laboratory Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/UCLUrbanLab) to watch from 18.30 GMT on Tuesday 29 November 2016.
Focusing on two cities that are exemplars of their urban regeneration in recent years: Barcelona and London, this event will bring together urban professionals and academics to reflect, from a long-term perspective, on the role of time in the construction and experience of these two cities. By doing this, we hope to situate questions around temporality at the forefront of the research agenda on urban change.
- Simone Abram (Anthropology, Durham University): “Anticipation and Apprehension: temporal agency in urban change”
- Mari Paz Balibrea (Department of Cultures and Languages, Birkbeck): “Militant time, leisure time, working time: Reflections on life in the creative city”
- Carme Gual Via (Foment Ciutat Vella, Barcelona City Council): “As time goes by…or how cities reinvent the wheel every term of office"
- Euan Mills (Future Cities Catapult): “How should temporal considerations affect the design of the built environment?"
- Bob Allies (Allies and Morrison Architects): "The urban masterplan: a process not a product"
- Mike Raco (The Bartlett, UCL): “Living in democratic times: Reflections on the transformation of London’s built environment”
This is the first of a two-part conference, with the second taking place at the Centre for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona on Tuesday 13 December.
The event is part of Dr. Monica Degen’s research project Timescapes of Urban Change, supported by a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship.
