URBANISM AND SOCIETAL CHANGE


URBANISM AND SOCIETAL CHANGE

The programme Urbanism and Societal Change is based upon the ambitions a) to embed the architectural/urban project within the dynamic conditions of contemporary society, b) to couple research and design within the project process, and c) to train future architects as leading actors in the material production of society. Profound societal transformations, ranging from political and economic to demographic shifts, and altered resource availability to climatic change indicate that we can no longer expect the future conditions of the discipline to be an extrapolation of the past. These emerging conditions challenge conventional understandings of urban spatial organization and the role of the architect and planner. In this context the capacity of architects to identify, understand and respond to these new conditions affecting the discipline becomes increasingly crucial.

URBANISM AND SOCIETAL CHANGE


NEAR URBAN FUTURES 2018/19

In the academic year 2018/19, the Urbanism and Societal Change program will speculate on our near urban futures in two different contexts, Copenhagen and Helsinki, addressed through two distinct, but related lenses, that of the so-called smart city, and that of the welfare city. Copenhagen, which has placed increasing focus on branding itself as a sustainable, liveable, and more recently, a smart city, will become a site for critically exploring the implications, limitations and opportunities of the contemporary informational and smart city. What are the wider implications of what has been referred to as the fourth industrial revolution? What roles could architects, urban designers and urban planners claim in an area of urban production that has tended to be dominated by engineering and technical specialists and large tech and infrastructure companies? Helsinki, like other Nordic capitals, is renown for its status as a welfare city in the latter half of the twentieth century. More recently the balance between market forces and the social ideals of equity and wellbeing has been placed under increasing pressure due to a number of factors, including internal migration, spatial sorting, housing unaffordability, and substantial increases in population. What are the possibilities to better understand these dynamics and challenges, and to react to them with a developed exploration of how a contemporary welfare city could be spatialised? By investigating these two similar, but distinct Nordic settings, what comparative learnings might also be gained?

SEMESTER PROGRAM

INFORMATIONAL CITY FUTURES - AUTUMN 2018 This semester will involve a critical interrogation of the contemporary informational and smart city discourses. A starting point for the semester is the notion that current paradigms associated with these discourses tend to reinforce the centralization and concentration of resources, information, markets, control, innovation, etc. The semester will explore the implications of alternate platforms, including sharing platforms, and technologies that could support the decentralization and democratization of innovation and production â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Â particularly in the role they might have in architecture and urban spatial development. The semester focus will extend to broader approaches for reconfiguring the switches and levers of city formation processes toward possible altered socio-spatial outcomes. On the one hand, the semester will involve an in-depth interrogation of cities, and the city itself, as platform, strategy, image, concept, atmosphere, material system, life form, etc.; while on the other, emphasis will be placed on explorations into the form, organization, and agency of architectural and urban typologies, and their dynamic responses to changing conditions. The site of the semester will be Copenhagen, and the work will be conducted in dialogue with public and private sector actors in this area. The general pedagogical approach is centred upon a feedback loop between research and design supported by a combination of studios and courses. Assignments, resulting in organizational and spatial design proposals that are largely self-programmed, are carried out at registers and scales spanning from the architectural intervention, and urban design, to the strategic urban plan. Emphasis will be placed on practices of engaging societal challenges through precisely framed research polemics and articulated design proposals. In addition to the main research-design studio component of the semester, supporting course elements involve a range of lectures, readings, discussions, assignments etc.

SEMESTER PROGRAM WELFARE CITY FUTURES - SPRING 2019

This semester will involve an exploration of the continued and developing role of the notion of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;welfare cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in light of its successes, challenges, threats, its transformed contexts, etc. Particular attention will be placed on the commonalities and distinctions between the Danish and Finnish welfare societies. How can we urbanize in the manner of the Nordic (Danish/ Finnish) Model? What are the spatial implications of different balances between market forces and the social ideals of equity and wellbeing? How might a Finnish perspective on welfare reflect back on the Danish context and vice versa. Questions to be explored include: could there be new possible expanded or altered roles for the public sector and what spatial implications could this have? How could the frequently discussed transformed role for civil society be enacted in different ways, and what spatial implications could this have? Could a developed approach suggest enhanced and further spatialized models of democracy? What new forms of housing, institutions, public space, neighbourhoods, planning could be imagined, in a further developed and reconfigured thinking around the welfare society? How can we rethink the relations between city and countryside in the context of the ambitions of a welfare society and the ongoing urbanization of economic development. The site of the semester will be Helsinki, and the work will be conducted in dialogue with local actors. Whereas the first semester addressed the city as a whole, zooming in an out at various relevant scales and locations, the second semester will explore related issues at the scale of a common neighbourhood area in current discussion for future local planning. Thus, where the first semester focuses more on urban strategy, planning and architectural typology, the second semester places more emphasis on urban design. Additionally, in the second semester, there will be emphasis placed on reflecting on the local context, in relation to an international one. The general pedagogical approach is centred upon a feedback loop between research and design supported by a combination of courses and studios. Design assignments, are carried out at registers and scales spanning from the architectural intervention, and urban design, to the strategic urban plan. Emphasis will be placed on practices of engaging societal challenges through precisely framed research polemics and articulate and artistically developed designs. In addition to the main research-design studio component of the semester, supporting course elements involve a range of lectures, readings, discussions, assignments etc.

URBANISM AND SOCIETAL CHANGE


The four programs at the Institute of Architecture, Urbanism & Landscape educate architects, that are able to create architecture with the capacity to meet the great challenges we are facing. They can, because they know how architecture is at the same time a building, a process, a strategy and a plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always inseparable from the society and the culture of which it is a part. They can, because they know how to handle the many different forms of complexities at stake in the processes of architecture and planning. They can in particular, because they can produce concrete spatial and material architectural proposals with the ability to lift a given situation to an experiential unity that is more than the sum of the parts. Institute of Architecture, Urbanism & Landscape works as a thinktank within its areas. Together with the students, practitioners, researchers and teachers pose sharp questions to the contemporary challenges of the city, and show new ways of meeting them. The Institute is collaborating with the most relevant offices, artists, organizations and authorities in our areas in order to manufacture tangible and well-sustained images of a future, where the architecture we are creating is giving more than it takes.
