Cities are a mirror of our aspirations. Is the neo-liberal city based on knowledge for the sake of economy the only way?

This lecture + workshop series looks at alternative ways to frame the value of the city. The neo-liberal models stem from the belief that knowledge capitalized as services and products is the only way to provide for the city. Consequently, tourism and “constructed culture” become driving forces of redevelopments that hinge on perpetual economic spiral.

We wish to create alternative modes where value of a city is constructed on basis of production and genuine making representing kernels of new civic culture. This represents an alternative value system to that of a neo-liberal one.

The lecture is an introduction into the question of value and production. The workshop as a curated design thinking called “Scenario Game” works on a concrete and specific problem in a given city and shapes an alternative socio/economic organization that could substitute traditional neo-liberal projects and proposes a new architectural design or production organization that makes this possible.
