2. The city is an object and a city is in transition
Cities are dynamic places in constant transition. The main elements of urban morphology, buildings, parcels and streets, landscape, open spaces and technical infrastructures form urban configurations shaped by local production of space. The configurations they build on multiple scales form, together with social, ecological and economic processes, complex systems. The adaptivity of these elements depends on their scale and related speed of change. An analytical and designerly approach to urban form acknowledges this complexity in the tension between object and process. This dialogue will question what spatial qualities will form the durability of place, what qualities contribute to its adaptivity and what disruptive transitions are necessary for our cities to afford eventual adaptations necessary to deal with current and futures crises.
