2nd Urbanism at Borders Global Conference

By on January 22, 2019

In the upcoming 2nd Urbanism at Borders Global Conference in Malaga 2019, we do not only aim to debate on the various existing realities where these polarities happen but also aim to advance our knowledge through various researches capable of defining these eccentricities, questioning the bottom-up activism, critically reviewed the maverick governmental policies, or of any other interventionist urban theories. Also, if grounded in architecture and urbanism practices, the conference will look for radical proposals related to multidisciplinary actions in the fields of art, activism, human rights, law, amongst others.
