Unplannable City – Approaches to Urban Emergence & Complexity (Exhibition in Mumbai @ Studio X)

Theme: Unplannable City – Approaches to Urban Emergence & Complexity

Dates: 3 Sept 2011 – 17 Sept 2011

Lectures (3 Sept – 9 Sept):
Unplannable Cities
Urban Emergence
Alternative Urban Models

Workshops (3 Sept – 9 Sept):
We are offering a series of open workshops for Post-graduate students and/or interested young professionals.
1) Methodologies for the development of sustainable approaches to urban change based on systemic (relational) understanding of ecologies and spatiality.
2) Investigative methodologies for spatial value mapping. (I can imagine this would be a real exchange of ideas)
This would be completely free and open to students by arrangement, with the only specification being that the event is hosted at least partially at the Studio X space.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an Exhibition Catalogue (flyer with cover and ordering information at the exhibition) which people will be able to order directly off Amazon.
