Urban [Re]Activism Toolkit


Urban [Re]Activism Toolkit


A methodological set for the creation, documentation and networking of autonomous architectures.

Architects and designers many times take a proactive role in the pursuit of an improved environment by generating and presenting their own projects in the public realm. This act of URBAN [RE]ACTIVISM is gaining greater relevance and expanding our profession in an increasingly connected society. We can learn from such projects by registering them and exploring the processes and mind-sets that lay behind them.

We propose to start from the Future Architecture Platform and use the momentum created by it to embed and launch a parallel process of research, documentation and networking. After collecting a project-pool from different urban activists, we will create an open glossary of terms and categories that describe this expanded work-frame and retrofit back to the projects and practices. The final aim is to generate a prototype of the TOOLKIT: an interactive and open methodological set for the creation, documentation and networking of autonomous architectures.
