Lecture: Revitalization as an urban strategy
If the city is an organism, the new extensions are as vital as the existing parts and the state of constant change is in their nature. Existing and new tissue will always strive to redefine parts of its identity and program, with the need to expand or make a contact. Growth and urban well-being cannot be conceived without urban revitalization. Urban revitalization, in addition to plans to condense or improve consolidated public spaces, includes a discussion of unclassified urban facts - such as informal production zones or passive interspaces awaiting adoption by individuals and groups of people in need of productive, cultural, and recreational activities that they couldn't find. its place in the existing protocols of urban management, etc.
Following this reflection, the lecture intends to discuss examples of initiatives that strengthen quality urban conditions based on a careful reading of individual urban socio-urban dynamics as a whole, while creating a vision of its physical environment.
Lecture and discussion in English and Serbian.
