Urban Stories Lecture Series
How did cities develop into the cities we live in now?
Which urban plans, instruments, visions, political decisions, economic reasoning, cultural inputs and social organization have been used to operate in urban settlements in specific moments of change?
In the Urban Stories Lecture Series, we chose cities that are exemplary in illustrating how urban instruments are implemented and how they shape urban environments. We transcribe these instruments into urban operational tools that we have recognized and collected within existing tested cases in contemporary cities across the globe.
Tool case studies are compiled into a toolbox, which we then use as templates to read the city and to critically reflect upon it. The presented contents are meant to serve as inspiration for positioning in future professional life as well as to provide instruments for future design decisions.
