New Stakeholders of Urban Change A Question of Culture and Attitude? Paperback / softback

Edited by Hilke Marit Berger, Gesa Ziemer

Part of the Perspectives in Metropolitan Research 4 series

Description

Answers key questions about urban densification and hybridity in the modern age.

Brings together perspectives from several different professions.

Pertains to the current concerns of citizens living in urban areas. In the urban centres of Europe, residents are increasingly demanding not only to participate in the discussion about the densification of our cities, but also to shape it actively.

It is especially creative planning projects that succeed in finding new role models and structures for urban development; artists act as urban developers, theatres carry out urban projects, curators curate the city, architects also take on the role of social workers.

This results in new hybrid fields of action that require a drastic rethinking of established strategies. This volume brings together perspectives from a number of different professions involved in urban planning, in order to seek answers to some central questions.

How does hybridity generate a contemporary urbanity?

How must contemporary institutions be structured? And how should a new culture of co-operation be set up to enable a mutual dialogue and transparency in development processes between citizens and authorities, as well as between the various stakeholders?
