Annual Report for 2018

Organized by Stefania Ragozino, Burcu Yigit Turan, and Mohamed Saleh, in collaboration with further TG members
During 2018, the group was coordinated by Gabriella Esposito De Vita and Ceren Sezer

 

Introduction

 

Public Spaces and Urban Cultures (PSUC) is a thematic group established in April 2010 with the initiative of Sabine Knierbein (Associate Professor, TU Vienna, Austria), Ceren Sezer (Architect and urban planner, TU Delft, Urban 4, Netherlands) and Chiara Tornaghi (Reader, Coventry University, United Kingdom). The main aim of the group is to generate an international and interdisciplinary exchange between the research and practices on public spaces and urban cultures. By doing so, it aims to support research, planning and a design agenda within the AESOP community, and beyond.

 

In 2018, the Group continued its endeavors to involve practitioners, academics, governmental and non-governmental professionals, and further interest groups into the TG’s activities and exchange of knowledge across disciplines and domains of action through meetings, workshops, conferences and roundtables. During 2018, the group’s membership rose to over 100 professionals working with public space, including practitioners and researchers, from both Europe and beyond. The year 2018 was important as a ‘strengthening year’ because the umbrella topic “Unstable geographies – Dislocated publics” (2016-2018) has been deeply investigated and the new self-organized management group have been operatively managed by active members (see list below).

 

Internal organization of the group

 

A collective made up of group members organizes the activities of the PSUC. Some of the tasks of the core group are: to establish the Group’s agenda (working topics, calls, meetings); to manage communication via various media (homepage, blog, Facebook, mailing list, newsletter) among the Group’s members; to prepare meetings and annual reports; to disseminate scientific results; to promote a strong involvement into research and publication affairs; as well as towards a broader audience and the AESOP Secretary General.

 

The list of members who managed the Group’s activities in 2018 (in alphabetic order):

Katarzyna Bartoszewicz (Poland), Nadia Charalambosu (Cyprus), Gabriella Esposito De Vita (Italy), Sabine Knierbein (Austria/Germany), Elina Kränzle (Austria/Germany), Weronika Mazurkiewicz (Poland), Matej Niksic (Slovenia), Stefania Ragozino (Italy), Nikolai Roskamm (Germany), Mohamed Saleh (Netherlands, Egypt), Sara Santos Cruz (Portugal), Ceren Sezer (Netherlands/Turkey), Tihomir Viderman (Austria/Croatia), Burcu Yigit Turan (Sweden, Turkey).

Special acknowledgements are extended to Professor Ali Madanipour (University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) and Professor Sophie Watson (Open University, UK), who have generously contributed to the group’s meetings with their wide expertise in the fields of public spaces and urban cultures.

 

During 2018 meetings, a shared intention has emerged to develop an advisory board to support and improve the efforts of the self-organization group. It would include founders, coordinators and external expert volunteers. Within the AESOP Gothenburg Annual Congress and the related TG Meeting a debate has been opened on this topic. It was also discussed how to engage new volunteer experts from countries not yet involved in the activities of the thematic group.

 

 

Group’s activities in 2018

 

This year was entirely dedicated to the development of activities related to the working theme Unstable Geographies – Dislocated Publics (2016-2018; http://www.aesop-planning.eu/blogs/posts/en_GB/urban-cultures-and-public-spaces/2015/12/16/readabout/call-for-interest-unstable-geographies-dislocated-publics) of which the first meeting was organized in November 2016 in Beirut, Lebanon. During 2017, current umbrella theme programmed meetings took place: Wien (Austria, 29th-31st March), Ljubljana (Slovenia, 23rd-26thMay), Lisbon (Portugal, 11th-14thJuly), and Rome (Italy, 11th-13rdDecember). During 2018 organizations have been implemented for events: Nicosia (Cyprus, 16-18th May), Amsterdam (Netherlands, 28th-30th June), and Gothenburg, (Sweden, 10-14thJuly).

Note: Apart from the general AESOP Annual Conference Meetings, the AESOP TG PSUC has established the policy that all meetings should be free of cost to AESOP TG members (http://www.aesop-planning.eu/blogs/en_GB/urban-cultures-and-public-spaces/test) and that affordable accommodation proposals are provided by the local host.

 

In times of open call for hosting an AESOP TG PSUC, group members and other interested parties could submit a proposal for hosting a TG event (conference/call for abstract/call for paper/workshop/meeting) about current themes of the PSUC Thematic Group. This proposal should contain information about timing, place, host institution, concept and issues to deepen.

 

Once the event has been accepted and scheduled, the working group has been constituted from local members and TG representatives, the working group will work on the call that will be shared with active TG members prior to dissemination in order to start the discussion of themes of relevance and to promote the participation to the event. A finally agreed version of the call will be shawith local and TG network through Social Media and Public Relations TG volunteers.

 

 

Consolidating the umbrella topic “Unstable Geographies – Dislocated Publics”

 

The working theme Unstable Geographies – Dislocated Publics recognizes public spaces, as a manifestation of cities’ different everyday cultures, as valuable social and cultural capital of urban societies. They have increasingly been celebrated as crossroads of different interests, backgrounds, and values, allowing – if not inviting – diverse urban populations to enjoy the fruits of (past) emancipatory struggle(s). A thriving scene of actors and performative practices mainly rooted in the fields of urban design and planning for the city centres and adjacent districts, engages in creating places of everyday life for multiple city publics. This renaissance of diverse public spaces, however, takes place against the bleak backdrop painted by fear and uncertainty now also spilling onto the privileged part of the world, which has found itself overwhelmed by the scale of the recent crisis of capitalism and the increased mobility of refugees and migrants, rendering public spaces important sites of humanitarian aid and protection of human and refugee rights. A response carved out by policymakers and institutions, which has not shied away from morally ambiguous means to put capitalism back on track and curb the influx of (uninvited) people, has shown that the institutions and the order of the West, while building on the achievements of past emancipatory struggles, often sustain hostile practices of exclusion and othering, and is undergoing fundamental shifts as well. A number of initiatives and activists’ movements stand in opposition to neo-colonial, nationalist and xenophobic practices, calling on urban publics and emerging cultures to challenge and rethink the prevailing political and institutional ethics. In the meantime, a strong call for strengthening dialogue and mutual learning between cities and regions of the Global South and of the Global North is gaining momentum in urban research and practice. The Unstable Geographies – Dislocated Publics series combines inclusive urban theory, methods, and practice to promote (post) migrational perspectives between different world regions and their cities. It simultaneously reflects on the changing structural constraints in times of multiple crises in which public space is emphasized in various, partly contradictory ways: social, cultural, ecological, political, and economic. Our standpoint takes public spaces as a key catalyst in the process of accommodating diverse cultural values and meeting basic human needs and rights. Among many salient and urgent issues that need to inform current planning, design, and research communities both in theory and practice, we suggest focusing on four main subtopics:

1. City, refugees, and migration

2. Fragmented social fabric – individualised patterns of consumption

3. The decline of national politics – Resurgence of the urban political

4. Change of perspective – worlding urban studies

 

 

Productive steps in 2018


 

16th-18th May

TG meeting, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus
NICOSIA MEETING - THE URBANIZATION OF (IN)JUSTICE. NEGOTIATION OF DIFFERENCES IN UNCERTAIN GEOGRAPHIES

The 3 days event combined various formats of exchange including the keynote speeches of both CyNUM and AESOP Public Spaces and Urban Cultures meetings, the contributions to the call for papers in parallel sessions, a field visit/walkshop and a concluding roundtable.

The purpose of the meeting was to unfold, discuss, challenge and rethink prevailing discourses concerning the manifestations of (in)justice in cities’ urban spaces, by taking an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspective. As implied in its title, “The Urbanization of (In)Justice: Public Spaces in Uncertain Geographies”, the meeting was conceived as a space of exchange aiming to involve researchers and practitioners alike in a critical and constructive debate on political and intellectual agendas that reflect on the development of socially just urban practices.

The aim of this conference was to share international and interdisciplinary perspectives of public space as a facilitator of (in)just urban transformation processes from various angles based on practical and/or theoretical work on themes such as:

  • Public space in relation to urban just and unjust conditions, today and through time
  • Public space and equity, public space and diversity, public space and identity, spatiality and power
  • Re-thinking public space through the connections between notions of justice, social relations, and spatial form
  • Responses to unjust urban patterns in form of emerging practices of self-organization and negotiations of difference in cities’ public spaces
  • Role of actors in the production of public space
  • Every-day practices of establishing spatial justice and injustice
  • Creation of subjectivities in or with public space
  • Politics of public space


28th-30th June

TG meeting, AMS and Wageningen University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
AMSTERDAM MEETING - RE-LEARNING PUBLIC SPACE, AN ACTION RESEARCH EVENT AMSTERDAM

This meeting welcomed researchers and practitioners from fields such as urban studies, planning, communication studies, geography, architecture, as well as active citizens, policy makers to an exploration that is somewhat out of the ordinary. Along five thematic routes, they were engaged with public spaces in Amsterdam and their challenges. The aim was to develop an alternative city guide that is also addressing questions of empowerment and ownership. The event challenged the traditional academic conference format – rather than having a series of paper presentations, participants will learn, and use their research and daily experiences to reflect on the main challenges that underpin the thematic routes.

Participants traced the stories behind innovative appropriations of public space, identify related dilemmas and formulate research questions. Prior to the event, we liaised with locals to design an alternative city guide inspired by a set of broad, yet timely themes. Participants dwelt on the challenges locals are confronted with, and the interventions they envisioned as potentially enriching the city. When presented with the opportunity to consult a broad, experienced and interested audience, what are the questions they would like to raise? The resulting city guide enabled the event participants to experience local everyday practices through thematic tours, which present alternative narratives of the city.

During the thematic tours, targeted interventions and exercises co-designed with local participants provided opportunities for debate and reflection. How do these interventions ‘perform the place’ and alter/disrupt/enhance relationships? The combination of activities shed light on questions of learning, ownership and empowerment, as well as setting the scene for future explorations and revisions of the alternative city guide. Here, public space is playground in a broad sense – participants learned and reflected by seeking connections with locally active people and designed objects not just as ‘quick’ passers-by, but as observers and participants, and by conducting Action Research. The explorations performed during the conference aimed to unpack the complex character of current and emergent urban challenges, to address those challenges both within community forums and plenary sessions, and to enable further learning and collaborative projects through the use of an open access data platform.


10th-14th July

AESOP Annual Congress, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

AESOP Annual Congress 2018 Gothenburg TRACK# 1 “PLACES”

In times of an increased unsettlement of urban routines relating to global restructuring, ecological disaster, social hardship, international migration and a crisis of liberal democracies, urban professionals are now much more confronted in redefining their own positionality in processes of place-making. Places are increasingly tackled as both potential catalysts of growth and creativity, but also for providing the social glue of cities, regions and urbanized areas. There is a lot of hope invested in what local places could contribute to these salient issues – as enabling spaces of different kinds and for different groups.

Considering places as the embodied sphere of everyday life routines, temporalities and contestations creates a conceptual bridge between planners’ reason-based principles and aspects such as affect, passion and the body. Emerging city publics appropriate places to render the city a genuine political project (e.g. insurgent movements, co-creation involving

refugees etc, and public art). Their action often connects to wider demands for the right to the city and the right to housing. As such, places afford people to create interstitial arenas for (re-)politicising what is often taken as common sense in official spaces of planning politics.

Such arenas act as sources of hope towards a just urban future. How can planning approaches account for a hidden potentiality in place-making through more performative approaches in professional praxis and spatial agency? How can urban professionals understand changing forms of (multiple and heterogeneous) place attachment both by newcomers and former residents in processes of planning?

Theoretical, empirical and methodological contributions to the “Places” track ideally deal with salient social pressures, cultural demands, ecological concerns, economic drivers and political requirements that target lived urban space. ‘Places’ are understood as transversal and multi-scalar (urban, regional, national, global) policy fields which require complex translations to become meaningful efforts on the ground.

The track Places committee collected more than 100 papers and organized 12 sessions and 3 special sessions in which about 70 presenters discussed on current social, cultural and political dilemmas (e.g. youth unemployment, health problems, segregation) in relation to place attachment and place-making processes and debating on How democratic are place-making processes, and what is needed in planning, design and research education to think again about the immanent link between urban space and lived democracy?



Theme issue of the Journal of Urban Design 2018, vol. 23, no. 6
BECOMING LOCAL

Following the general umbrella theme “Becoming Local” for the period 2013-2015 of the Thematic Group, a themed issue was published in 2018, with the same title in the Journal of Urban Design (Guest editors: Sara Santos Cruz, Nikolai Roskamm, Nadia Charalambous). The process was initiated in 2016, with the Call for abstracts, inviting authors to contribute with insights in contextual differences and highlighting the necessity of developing new epistemologies, research tactics, action-based methodologies and researcher identities bridging across academic and institutional boundaries. Besides, contributions should explore manifold perspectives on the set of practices and values that interact in urban spaces as crossroads where global and local forces meet and sometimes collide.

The themed issue intended to deepen the understanding of the relational nature of public spaces and of the role public spaces can play to challenge the conditions of injustice in the contemporary city; more specifically, to bring out discussions on these topics:

(1) Understanding public spaces as “places” where global tendencies ‘sediment’ and are being ‘translated’ and ‘transformed’ according to local cultural, social and political contexts.

(2) Public spaces as a ‘reflection of local identities’ shaped by community behaviours, patterns of everyday life and collective memories. 

(3) Public spaces as a ‘ground of investigation of place making practices’ by different actors and agents particularly in the context of changing role of state, market and civil society in shaping, creating and transforming public spaces.

In all, the themed issue emphasized manifold perspectives on the ‘localized meaning of places’, created and molded by practices, behaviours and collective memories. Four papers comprise research from different socio-spatial contexts, encompassing those diverse perspectives. Meirav Aharon-Gutman and Moriel Ram, in their paper ‘Objective possibility as urban possibility: reading Max Weber in the city’ employ Max Weber’s concept from a socio-historical perspective to the analysis of urban environments, namely studying informal synagogues in Acre. In ‘Public life, immigrant amenities and socio-cultural inclusion: the presence and changes of Turkish amenities in Amsterdam’, Ceren Sezer explores the changes of Turkish amenities in Amsterdam at street and city levels, concluding on the ineffectiveness of inclusive socio-cultural policies of immigrants, in face of the decline of immigrants amenities. Tihomir Viderman and Sabine Knierbein explore the events of autumn 2015, in Vienna, in the paper ‘Reconnecting public space and housing research through affective practice’, concluding that ‘affective practice can be interpreted as the spatialized critique of alienated conditions of everyday life’. Finally, in ‘Urban public open space in the mental image of users: the elements connecting urban public open spaces in a spatial network’, Matej Nikšič & Georgia Butina Watson argue on the relevance of both the overall spatial urban structure and its constituent parts in how users conceptualize urban open public space.



September
Special Issue of the journal Urbani Izziv - https://urbaniizziv.uirs.si/content_s/id/70/id_k/s
PUBLIC SPACE FOR LOCAL LIFE

Within the call for contributions promoted for the joint event “Public Space for Local Life” organized by EU Human Cities partnership and AESOP Thematic Group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures in Ljubljana during May 2017 (http://humancities.eu/story/public-space-for-local-life/), Slovenian colleagues gave to participants the opportunity to contribute through a blind review process to a special issue of the open access journal Urbani Izziv – nine participants were included in the author list. Guest editors of this special issue are Alenka Fikfak (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia), Matej Nikšič (University of Ljubljana and Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, Slovenia), and Stefania Ragozino (Research Institute for Innovation and Services for Development, Italy).

The socio-economic changes and the democratization processes that started to unroll across the eastern part of Europe three decades ago opened new questions and challenges to the existing urban planning systems across the continent. The prevailing spirit of optimism assumed that the changes would bring positive developments to various societal sub-systems, including urban planning, seen not merely as a technical discipline but also as a political process concerned with development of inhabited spaces. The democratization of the urban planning system was interpreted as setting new standards for an equal input of citizens in urban (re)development processes. At the same time certain other major changes were taking place across the European continent and at the global scale at the turn of the millennium, such as the progress of neoliberal and profit oriented market environments and the decreasing powers of welfare states within the broader framework of globalization. The ideals of equitable distribution of wealth and equality of opportunities were largely replaced by the ideals of free trade, market deregulation, privatization, and decreased governmental spending in social affairs, while the role of the states in neoliberal systems largely changed from regulatory into that of a notary, with the role of social reproduction largely reflecting the logic of capitalist production.

Under those conditions, it became easier to consider the democratic principles and consensual decision making in urban development at the theoretical level rather than in practice, despite the development of new technologies that could technically support democratization processes. When it came to everyday experiences and practices, some essential questions still needed to be answered: How to attain a decision making process that would be more reflective of the concrete needs and desires of heterogeneous urban populations? How to give the residents a true voice in decision making and how to mitigate the often contradicting interests that exist among them? And, last but not least, how to restore the demos – in its most noble ancient meaning – back into the centre of the decision making?

Specifically, Urbani Izziv is a scholarly six-month journal published by the Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia since 1989, intended for the dissemination of new knowledge and discussion of contemporary spatial planning issues. Despite its major focus on social science topics, the orientation of the journal is interdisciplinary, encompassing developments and new directions in research fields, thereby strengthening, and broadening, improving and synergizing skills. In addition to Slovenian authors, the editors strive to ensure a balanced participation of authors, also from other countries in the region and worldwide. Urbani Izziv is published in two languages: all contributions are published in Slovenian and English.The journal is subsidized by the Slovenian Research Agency. The submission and publication of articles is free of charge for authors.



Special Issue of  Tracce Urbane 3/2018,
https://ojs.uniroma1.it/index.php/TU/issue/viewIssue/1218/101
SPAZI CHE ABILITANO / ENABLING SPACE

This Tracce Urbane issue takes inspiration from the International Conference Cities and Self-Organization, hold on December 2017 in Rome, Italy (http://tracceurbane.org/next-conference-2017/), in collaboration with La Sapienza University of Rome and the AESOP – Association of European Schools of Planning. The seminar aim was to contribute to the debate on the conceptualization and experiences of self-organization in the history of planning theory and in contemporary practices. This special issue introduced some relevant statements emerging from the debate and some interesting connections between the several contributions, focusing on the central theme, among the urban self-organization debate, of what we called a possibility of creating an “enabling space”.

“Enabling space” has been defined as the “context that allows to ‘make’ and to participate”, an “enabling” character for everyone, because it requires each one to get out of their own frames and routines, to find collective solutions to deal with common problems and satisfy their needs, interests and expectations. Therefore, it has to do with forms of redistribution of power and the creation of a new culture of urban government; working on inclusive processes able to valorize social and institutional capabilities, to reinforce them, but also able to create new ones.



2018 (publication expected for the 2020)
Special issue of the Journal of Public Space
MAPPING URBAN INJUSTICES IN PUBLIC SPACE: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

This productive step was born as a Call for Papers for the annual meeting of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP)’s Thematic Group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures in Nicosia, co-organized in May 2018 by Nadia Charalambous, Ceren Sezer, and Nikolai Roskamm, titled “The Urbanization of (In)Justice: Public spaces in uncertain geographies” (http://cyprusconferences.org/psuc2018/).

Over the past few decades, cities around the world radically and rapidly changed as regards scale, scope and complexity. These changes challenge the processes of production of built environment and create conflicts and contestations between different urban groups, who have contradicted claims on the decisions and processes influencing urban transformation. Questions on privileging the interests of affluent urban groups, while disadvantaging vulnerable communities are raised, fueling discussions on just/unjust urban transformation processes. This special issue will focus on exploring the role of public space as a possible facilitator of a more just process of urban transformation, promoting fair allocations of wealth, resources, benefits and opportunities. Seven papers will investigate: the ways in which urban (in)justices can be mapped; the challenges and opportunities that may arise from different approaches to mapping; the role of public space pedagogy to reframe methods of understanding (un)just urban morphologies in urban research, planning and architectural theory.

Naomi Adiv - nadiv@pdx.edu

University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; on leave from Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, USA

 

A COMPARATIVE HISTORICAL STUDY OF MUNICIPAL TOILET PROVISION IN PORTLAND, SEATTLE AND SAN FRANCISCO

Duration: 2017-2018

Coordinator: Naomi Adiv, Portland State University, Oregon, USA

Partners: Amy Lubitow, Portland State University

Funding scheme: I-CASS Early Career Development Award

Themes and expected results: This project will compare the provision of municipal toilets in three west coast cities: Portland, Seattle and San Francisco, focusing on the period from the 1960s to the present day, in which these cities have undergone major restructuring in both industry and fiscal policy. This study asks the following questions: Why have American cities provided (and decommissioned) municipal toilets over time? Where have they sited them over time, and why? What sort of political will and physical infrastructure are necessary to cause cities to provide toilets? What kinds of people do or do not have access to municipal toilets and why? By asking practical questions about why cities have provided toilets in particular times and places, this study aims towards larger theoretical issues of how the body is accommodated (or not) in the realm of publicly shared spaces, as different kinds of people dwell in and move through the city.

SUSTAINABLE URBAN GOVERNANCE THROUGH AUGMENTED REALITY

Duration: 2019-2020

Coordinator: Cyprus University of Technology, Nicosia, Cyprus

Partners: University of Cyprus, Harvard University

Funding Scheme: Restart; Research Promotion Foundation

Themes: The Sustainable Urban Governance through Augmented Reality (SUGAR) project aims to develop innovative best-practice protocols and guidelines on Sustainable Urban Governance and specifically Public Participation through Augmented Reality.  The project's key activities include: research in urban governance, augmented reality and public participation to develop a Sustainable Urban Governance framework through AR specifically designed for implementation in the Cypriot context and use of an ‘experimental research’ framework through design thinking to implement, coordinate and monitor such a participatory planning model through a workshop format in Cyprus facilitated by the entire consortium bringing together the public and planning experts.

 

URBAN POTENTIAL IN THE EVOLUTION OF NICOSIA’S PUBLIC REALM

Duration: 2018-2019

Coordinator: N. Charalambous, University of Cyprus

Funding Scheme: University of Cyprus (UCY) Research Program, Funding for Post-Doctoral Researcher Position

Post-Doc Researcher: Ilaria Geddes

Themes: The issue addressed by the research is the development of an effective methodology to identify areas of the public realm, which have the potential to develop into sustainable local centres within the metropolitan urban area of Nicosia. The public realm as the place of social and economic exchange is a vital part of city life, which enables movement across the city, encounters between residents and visitors, as well as trade and enterprise, delivering goods and services to the community. As such, the public realm, comprising our streets, roads, squares, public spaces and sidewalks along with the related infrastructure, is the most important factor in sustaining thriving local neighbourhoods.

Themes and expected results: Urban Morphology, Urban form studies, and multidisciplinary architectural pedagogy are the general themes. Expected results are establishing a network linking the different approaches in urban morphology, developing learning platforms that foster the exchange of knowledge, providing opportunities for contact between members and encouraging the dissemination of findings. The coming together of researchers, educators and learners from different geographical areas and disciplines will provide the opportunity to establish common theoretical foundations for the growing number of urban form studies in many parts of the world. It will also provide the means to engage all stakeholders currently within introverted disciplinary, institutional and geographical boundaries, in a fruitful discussion through a collaborative open learning curriculum supported by a blended learning approach.

GEOGRAPHIES OF AGE

Duration: 01/2018 until 06/2019

Coordinator: ETH CASE, Zurich, Switzerland

Partners: KTH CFP, Stockholm, Sweden

Funding scheme: Funded by KTH CFP, Stockholm, Sweden

Themes and expected results: In the context of an ageing population, growing life expectancy and with it a larger share of very old persons, questions of access to housing, services and public spaces present growing challenges to many cities. The vision of age-friendly cities and ageing in place (allowing older persons to stay as long as desired and possible in their familiar home environment) is facilitated by processes of digitalisation, individualisation of life-styles, urban regeneration, new housing arrangements, a variety of services and so forth. At the same time, it is partly the same factors such as urban growth and regeneration, limited availability of appropriate housing, physical and social barriers in terms of access to public spaces and services, mobility of families and changing family patterns that contribute to reducing the quality of life of older and very old persons. These potentially increase isolation and loneliness in that life period.

Considering the actual demographic development, the share of older people in our countries will increase considerably in the next 20 to 30 years. Given these developments, policies for healthy ageing and ageing in place will become more important. Our cities and societies as a whole will face a multitude of challenges: The incidence of chronic and age-related conditions such as dementia will increase considerably. Yet, with the restructuring of retirement provision systems, migration, changes in the labour market, the average wealth of future older generations is likely to decrease considerably. For healthy ageing, the participation in urban life and meaningful activities is fundamental. Particularly, if ageing in one’s own living environment is to be supported for psychological, social and economic reasons, appropriate housing options and accessible and inclusive public urban spaces are needed, which offer a variety of barrier-free, attractive and no/low-cost indoor and outdoor opportunities for social interactions.

Against this background, the Centre for the Future of Places (CFP) at KTH Stockholm, ETH Centre for Research on Architecture, Society and the Built Environment (ETH CASE) in Zurich and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space at TU Wien are carrying out a joint research project.

URBAN DESIGN CRITERIA FOR PLANNING – ANALYSIS OF THE UTILIZATION RATE OF BUILT-UP BUILDING LAND

Duration: 2018-2019

Coordinator: Matej Nikšič, Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Partners: Ljubljana Planning Institute, BD Planning

Funding scheme: National funds

Themes and expected results: Slovenia has adopted a new Spatial Planning Law in 2017. The research is one of many commissioned by the Slovenian national ministry of spatial planning to provide detailed guidance on implementation of the new law in practice. This research aims to analyse the adaptation of quantitative urban planning measures in practices (FSI, FAR etc.) and propose new values for future municipal plans. One of the aims is to regulate the future development of Slovenian settlements in a way that urbanisation densities would not obstruct the quality of urban space. Open urban space preservation is an important measure in these endeavours.

CITIZEN SENSING - URBAN CLIMATE RESILIENCE THROUGH PARTICIPATORY RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Duration: 2017-2020

Coordinator: Tina-Simone Neset, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden

Coordinator from CITTA: Sara Santos Cruz, CITTA/FEUP

Partners: Linköping University, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Deltares

Funding scheme: ERA4CS/0001/2016, JPI Climate and co-funded by European Union

Themes and expected results: Urban citizens continually make a multitude of decisions related to climate-related risks e.g. extreme temperatures, precipitation, flooding, water and air pollution and their impacts and these are most often made without clear knowledge of locally specific conditions. With new technologies such as citizen sensing, there is an emerging opportunity for citizens to enhance urban resilience, both as providers of locally situated data (e.g. bacteria levels in drinking water, infrastructure damage or ecological changes) and as receivers of specific recommendations of how to respond to climate-related challenges. Objectives (1) to develop a Participatory Risk Management System that incorporates place-specific information, links to existing guidelines on urban climate risk management and adaptation, and functions as an integrative platform for citizens and relevant organizations at different scales (2) to analyze if, how and to what extent the Participatory Risk Management System has potential to increase preparedness and appropriate responses by citizens and authorities to increase urban climate resilience in different European and climate contexts

SPLACH- SPATIAL PLANNING FOR CHANGE

Duration: 2018-2020

Coordinator: Paulo Pinho, CITTA/FEUP, Portugal

Partner: DINAMIACET - ISCTE/IUL; GOVCOOP - University of Aveiro

Funding scheme: Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional (FEDER) e Portugal 2020

 

Themes and expected results: The main objective of the SPLACH research programme is the production of a comprehensive and coherent body of development control and transformative planning policies, implementation mechanisms, planning models and decision support systems, able to feed and guide Portuguese planning practice including both the public and the private sectors, at the plan making and the licensing stages - towards a rapid and effective transition to a low carbon and social inclusive urban system. SPLACH draws on some of the main areas of knowledge of the three Research Units (RU) CITTA, DINÂMIA and GOVCOPP. Two or three main areas of knowledge were identified for each RU: spatial planning, Post Carbon Cities / PCC, transformative policies (CITTA), cities in transition and socio-technical system, urban sustainability and food security (DINÂMIA), services of general interest, tourism and modelling (GOVCOPP).

MOBI-AGE – PROMOTING URBAN MOBILITY IN AGEING POPULATIONS

Duration: 2018-2019

Funding scheme: FCT-MIT Portugal - MITEXPL/STS/0065/2017

Themes and expected results: This exploratory project aims to contribute to the promotion of sustainable mobility for the aged population. This population, with some restrictions in terms of personal mobility, do not always have easy access to urban spaces and to the components of the transport system. Urban centers concentrates a good part of the aged population in cities, that inhabit older buildings as well. By definition and in most of these cities, these areas are also areas where historical monuments and other factors of tourist attraction are located. Senior tourism is also a consequence of the general ageing of the population and has been increasing. This panorama makes the urban centers, especially the historical ones, as places where a greater number of elderly people are concentrated in comparison to other zones of the city, residents and visitors. It has been observed that neither the urban public space nor the transport system are adequate, with optimal conditions, to the mobility needs of these groups.

In this way, this exploratory project focuses first and foremost on the bibliographical review on the adequacy of the urban space at the level of urban design and infrastructures as regards the routes and on the pedestrian and bicycle accesses, both to the buildings and access points of the transport system. On the other hand, the literature on the mobility and accessibility of the elderly in the transport system will also be reviewed. Using some information from this review, two case studies, one in Coimbra and another in Porto (selected areas of urban rehabilitation zones historical centers of the two cities) will be studied in relation to the characteristics of their resident elderly population, the areas of residence and characteristics of the public space including touristic attractions, in order to identify needs and failures. A methodology for the diagnosis and classification of historical central spaces, particularly those that are the target of urban rehabilitation operations, will be elaborated from the bibliographical review and the evaluation work of the case studies, as to their suitability in terms of mobility inside the zones considered and between those zones and other zones of the city, for the older population, whether resident or visitor. This methodology should inform the future development of interactive information platforms, aimed at end-users of the space and not only for visitors, but also for residents, which will allow them to find easier solutions to their travel needs.

Funding scheme: Co-funded by Urban Mistra Futures, Lund University, Malmö University and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

 

The Scania region, in principal the city of Malmö, is what we, at least by Nordic measures, can call a migration gateway. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, Malmö was a major harbor of migrant departure, and it is today an important hub of immigrant arrival in Sweden. This was not least the case in the fall of 2015 when the number of asylum applications peaked in Sweden. The region is fast growing. Its population and economic growth depend on immigration. It is also a region with comparatively large inequalities, with foreign born being overrepresented in the poor segments of the population. Its media representation is dominated by negative descriptions of conflicts and criminality, often as related to immigration, not least in international media reporting. Both popular, political and academic debates about the develop in Malmö tend to get polarized, this panel aim at contributing to this debate building on empirically relevant and theoretically sound research.
