Sensibilizing Urbanism


An approach to ’potentialising’ individual & local participation within the collective & urban context for design-finding processes

Sensibilizing Urbanism


An approach to ’potentialising’ individual & local participation within the collective & urban context for design-finding processes
The process of ‘Sensibilizing Urbanism’ occurs in transitional spaces between the public and the private that are inherent to every city.
File under

From a machine with various components of functions, the city becomes an organism, an interconnected system of parts. It consists of an endless number of elements & agents, contributing to the continuous morphogenesis of its structures & dynamics.
Decision-making and design-finding processes still too frequently follow intentional & controlled strategies and hence overlook self-organized processes of complex systems. Civic participation is greatly dependent on the consciousness of making change possible on an urban dimension through local involvement. Thus, an urban sensibilisation is required, ’potentialising’ individual & local participation within the collective & urban context to enable design-finding processes.

The process of ‘Sensibilizing Urbanism’ occurs in transitional spaces between private & public, inherent to every city. The elements within these transitional spaces become interfaces allowing an information exchange on a local reaching up to an urban scale.
