Session 2: Architectural Dissidence in the Public Arena
Public space is a complex scenario that involves different interests and actors including citizens, public administrations, private clients and all other parties involved in its governance. All these forms of influence also open the door to large uncertainties. Can architects and designers, through public space, stimulate citizens’ self-organisation and facilitate social interaction within communities? Can contemporary public space generate real structural changes in our contemporary system? This second session includes a lecture by architect and critic Ethel Baraona followed by an open conversation with architect and curator Gonzalo Herrero.
