29 April 2014 : Join us for the Roundtable Session on Marketplaces during the AESOP Congress 2014 (Utrecht, the Netherlands)

ROUNDTABLE: MARKETPLACES as URBAN DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES (9-12 July 2014, Utrecht, the Netherlands)

Marketplaces are often romanticised as traditional spaces of 'pure' encounters between producers and consumers in an increasingly privatised world. Farmer’s Markets are well-known example of this and several city governments seem to have embraced the urban marketplace as a tool for ‘placemaking.’ Yet this enthusiasm needs to be supported by a critical analysis of how exactly, marketplaces act as inclusive public spaces that support residents, rather than merely real estate developers. For this reason, two members of our thematic group, Freek Janssens (UvA) and Ceren Sezer (TU Delft) are organizing a roundtable discussion during the AESOP Annual Congress 2014, in the Netherlands. Sophie Watson, Arnold Reiindorp, Ching Lin Pang, Nuria Costa Galobart and Will Fullford will contribute to the session. (For more information about the conference:  http://www.aesop2014.eu)
