Our built environment raises new issues daily—whether from a cultural, technical, economic, social, political, or aesthetic point of view. However, all too often discussions about architecture and urban development are based on superficial images, or a master plan is demanded that provides a comprehensive solution. How can we really do justice to the complexity of the urban, and in what context should planning be presented today? In this book, international architects, planners, and cultural theorists describe and analyze alternative urban development strategies, the planning of the unplannable, the appropriation of urban spaces, and the activation of unexploited potential—from mobility to migration, from spatial interventions to social transformations.
