How can we re-imagine ordinary neighbourhoods through strategically engaging and intensifying their creative potential, embracing their identity through their traditions, rituals, new temporary art and cultural events? Students are introduced to design methods and tools for neighbourhood design through cultural co-production, festivals, exhibitions, celebrations, and case-studies from the Urban-Lecture Series. Strategic concepts respond to, negotiate and link productive collisions with diverse processes and factors that shape densification of city blocks and streetscapes. Considering day-light, programming and imagining growth processes, small scale neighbourhoods are transformed into legitimate districts, towns and Cities within Cities.
