The relation between the formal andinformal citypresents the focus of this class. The focus is on strategies 

to improve the urban living conditions in disadvantaged residential quarters in emerging cities. 

 

General topic in 2019: 

Social inclusive strategies to upgrade the In_Formal City.

Practical examples from Latin America.

 

 

Keywords 

Arrival City, informal urban development, social inclusion, micro-urbanism approach,affordable housing, incremental housing, neighbourhood upgrading, the architect as an activist, urban eco-systems.

 

 

Topic

 

The informal cityoften stands as a synonym for a place with high population density. Social exclusion 

and segregation along with economic marginalization are all too often existing conditions that frame the 

real urban life of such an informal city. The term ‚informality’, however, is by no means synonymous to chaos or delinquency, or simply something ‚illegal’. Without dispute, the future of the city depends on the extent to which we are able to synchronize the existing potentialsof both the informal and formal city;it will certainly depend on how fast we learn to plan the unplanned!

By now, there exist various urban regions worldwide, particularly in Latin America,which in their develop-ment trajectory have positively influenced the interface between the informal and the formal city.What all these strategies have in common is that especially existing, grown structures – be they formal or informal – have been integrated in further urban development efforts. These upgrading-projectsintend to uplift dis-advantaged informal urban districts and their deficits as opposed to the formal city. 

The cities and examples discussed in class mainly attempt to find answers to all those areas where the city authorities still have an ultimate decision taking authority: the public space, the mobility sector and education! 

Within that context neigborhood upgrading, affordable urban housingand mobility infrastructures are key challenges for the contemporary Latin American City. Therebythe role of architects and plannersis of central importance to provide urban housing facilities and a livable neigbourhood environment. It is their responsibility to go beyond the need for creative design and planning in order to create a favourable climate for dialogueand consult other disciplinesfrom social and administrative areas. Mobility infrastructures andtactical interventionswithin the urban transformation of the Latin American City 

and their relevance for social inclusionare the main topics of this class.

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

 

The informal city often stands as a synonym for a place with high population density. Social exclusion and segregation along with economic marginalization are all too often existing conditions that frame the real urban life of such an informal city. The term ‚informality’, however, is by no means synonymous to chaos or delinquency, or simply something ‚illegal’. Without dispute, the future of the city depends on the extent to which we are able to synchronize the existing potentials of both the informal and formal city; it will certainly depend on how fast we learn to plan the unplanned!
By now, there exist various urban regions worldwide, particularly in Latin America, which in their develop-ment trajectory have positively influenced the interface between the informal and the formal city. What all these strategies have in common is that especially existing, grown structures – be they formal or informal – have been integrated in further urban development efforts. These upgrading-projects intend to uplift dis-advantaged informal urban districts and their deficits as opposed to the formal city.
The cities and examples discussed in class mainly attempt to find answers to all those areas where the city authorities still have an ultimate decision taking authority: the public space, the transport sector and education!
Within that context neigborhood upgrading, affordable urban housing and mobility infrastructures are key challenges for the contemporary Latin American City. Thereby the role of architects and planners is of central importance to provide urban housing facilities and a livable neigbourhood environment. It is their responsibility to go beyond the need for creative design and planning in order to create a favourable climate for dialogue and consult other disciplines from social and administrative areas. Mobility infrastructures and tactical interventions within the urban transformation of the Latin American City and their relevance for social inclusion are the main topics of this class.
