Symposium and Panel Discussion (in English)

Date: Sat, 0ct 31, 2 pm until 8 pm
Venue: Az W, Podium
Admission free!


New prototypes for extreme spatial configurations have emerged from informal structures in the wake of the economic deregulation and exploding mobility. Rapidly spreading informal markets on the peripheries in Europe, for instance, form urban nodes for the networks of global migration. Are these architectures of informal exchange the forced low-cost counterpart for the success of the global capital market, or is their creativity showing the way to more sustainable ecologies? The symposium on the FWF research project \'Relational Architecture\' addresses critical questions on the participation of architecture in this reconstruction of our political and economic environment, from the local scale of neighbourhoods to the dimensions of civil society in transnational regions.
