OfficeUS: Workshop with Professor Anupama Rao
Saturday July 26, 2014
Workshop with Professor Anupama Rao (Barnard College, Columbia University) & OfficeUS Housing Public Good research group.
Saturday, July 26th, 4-6PM (Venice, Italy)
“Subaltern Urbanism?” will examine contemporary discourses and strategies around housing projects in a global context. We will touch on experimental self-building and self-funding initiatives; the role of the state in conditions of deregulated and informalized development; the privatized planning processes and financial speculations associated with these trends… What prototypes of “citizenship” do different housing models enact and (re)produce? What is the role of architecture –and architects– within these processes?
