Ground-Up City Play as a Design Tool

Ground-Up City Play as a Design Tool | Adaptive Cities | Scoop.it
With Ground-Up City, author Liane Lefaivre has developed a theoretical model for tackling playgrounds as an urban strategy. She starts with a historical overview of play and the ludic in art, architecture and urban design, focusing particularly on postwar playgrounds realized in Amsterdam as joint ventures between Aldo van Eyck, Cornelis van Eesteren and Jakoba Mulder. The architecture firm Döll-Atelier voor Bouwkunst explored the possibility of applying the model in two urban redevelopment areas in Rotterdam, Oude Westen in the inner city and Meeuwenplaat in Hoogvliet, an outlying postwar district, refining it into a practical design strategy. The second part of the book provides a refreshing new look at play in a picture essay, with reference images illustrating play as an urban phenomenon. Ground-Up City places the playground high on the agenda as an urban design challenge. It also shows how specifying a generic, academic model for a particular situation can lead to a practically applicable design resource.

Austerity urbanism and the makeshift city

Austerity urbanism and the makeshift city
Manu Fernandez's insight:

This paper engages with a recent set of critical arguments concerning the 'post-crisis city' and the political economy of 'austerity urbanism'. The focus of the discussion is on practical interventions in the vacant and disused spaces of recessionary cities, and in particular on temporary designs and provisional uses. In this way, it opens a further line of argument about urbanism under conditions of austerity, alongside analyses of the formal politics of austerity or the possibilities of urban activism in these settings. Its concern is with forms of urban intervention that re-work orthodoxies of urban development as usual: in particular the timescales that inform conventional development models; the understandings of use around which sites are planned and designed; and the ways in which value is realized through the production of urban spaces.

Destrucción creativa - ¿Cómo compartir la ciudad?

Los días 14 y 15 de noviembre se celebrará la tercera edición de las jornadas Destrucción creativa, organizadas por ZZZINC, La Hidra y Etopia. Aunque en años anteriores no he podido asistir, siempre ví esas ediciones como un encuentro intenso de personas, proyectos e iniciativas de mucho interés. Este año voy a tener la oportunidad de estar y creo que es un planazo todo el programa.

Me han invitado a compartir unas reflexiones iniciales para el debate de la sesión ¿Cómo compartir la ciudad?, en el que intervendrán Iñaki Romero (Paisaje Transversal), Daniel Sarasa (Milla digital) y Julia López Ventura (Habitat Urbà Ayuntamiento de Barcelona) con el siguiente planteamiento:
En los últimos años, el discurso de la innovación alrededor de las ciudades ha girado alrededor de dos ejes: una visión vertical en la que se usan nuevas tecnologías y procesos en pos de la eficiencia (las políticas de la “smart city”), y una emergente en que ciudadanos autoorganizados intervienen en dar forma al tejido de la ciudad, y asumen responsabilidades en su gestión (bautizados en contraposición como “Smart Citizens”).
