MANAGING URBAN CHANGE

second announcement
call for participation


Theme

As the traditional forms of economic growth have lost their power, design, architecture, art and culture are becoming catalysts in the revival of cities. Consequently cities are going through dramatic economic and cultural changes that demand completely new ways of management. In order to come to terms with this different economic and cultural climate, they have to embark on new processes of urban development. This new type of development incorporates a holistic vision of the city and balances the interests of both the public and private sectors of society.

The conference "Managing Urban Change" in Helsinki concerns the understanding of contemporary urban dynamics and exemplifies reactions of cities to this new economic condition.

The conference addresses design, architecture and urban management as agents of change .

It introduces the strategic planning debate currently going on in the Netherlands and in Germany as a flexible reaction to the traditional masterplanning of cities.

It further includes cultural planning as a British approach to innovation in urban development.

A link to urban studies and contemporary cultural theory will be made through Scott Lash.Euralille will feature as an important case of study, but also Glasgow and Rotterdam as cities that have gone through remarkable physical and cultural transformations, fully supported by their population, will be highlighted.
