Abstract

Today’s urban experience is defined and encompasses a variety of phenomena that change the way we interact with the city. Mobile and transformable architecture, increasing population displacement, the ‘generic city’... These unravel on a large scale and impact on residents’ perception of and relation to their environment. Can simple actions, images and ideas such as the hybridisation of conventional and unusual urban realities, ‘deghettoisation’ or use and assertion of public spaces infiltrate the collective imagination in order to promote identity, specificity and a sense of belonging? The ongoing Adaptive Actions project lends artistic voice to marginal causes and alternative urban lifestyles to address site-specific issues related to post-conception and post-production in urban development.
