Cities have always been places of produc­tion – from Meso­po­tamian times to the Mega­lo­polis of the 21st Century; yet, what are new perspec­tives on the produc­tivity of cities – espe­ci­ally in rela­tion to food and energy produc­tion?

We want to discuss economic and ecolo­gical factors in urban deve­lop­ment today, and specu­late on future cities and the role of exis­ting as well as enti­rely new forms of urban produc­tion (indus­trial, agri­cul­tural, craft, etc.); and explore the connec­tion between new forms of urban produc­tion and the poten­tial gestalt and urban design of tomor­rows produc­tive places. Therein, we will deal with the para­digm of the mixed city and inves­ti­gate today’s and tomorrow’s possi­bi­li­ties of inte­gra­ting produc­tive uses into neigh­bour­hoods – brid­ging former misal­li­ances of working and living. While indus­trial scale urban farming, aqua­po­nics and other means of food produc­tion in cities have the poten­tial to change the way our urba­nities look towards a more ecolo­gical or “green” urban produc­tion; new possi­bi­li­ties of energy produc­tion, waste-recy­cling, a new (digi­tally enhanced) craft­s­manship and other factors play into diffe­rent facets of a new (circular) urban economy.

Ques­tions to be dealt with will include e.g.:

  • What can be produced in the city and how?
  • What solu­tions can be found to inte­grate these (new) forms of produc­tion into exis­ting urba­nities?
  • How can we make produ­cing and living in cities compa­tible? What is e.g. the role of Citi­zens?
  • Will future produc­tive cities under new (e.g. digital) para­digms be diffe­rent in their gestalt?
  • And if so: How? How will we live in produc­tive urba­nities and how will we produce in our neigh­bour­hoods?
  • Could more produc­tive cities in the future e.g. lead to greener urba­nities?

The studio includes a study-trip to Iceland (May 9–14th) explo­ring alter­na­tive energy-resources and -produc­tion as well as a two day ad-hoc work­shop (May 16–17th) – in coope­ra­tion with the ROOF WATER FARM (www​.roof​wa​ter​farm​.com) and TOPF­AR­MERS  – within activi­ties for IGA Berlin 2017.
Students inte­rested in parti­ci­pa­ting in the EUROPAN 14 (Dead­line: June 30) – running under the moniker “PRODUC­TIVE CITIES” – are encou­raged to do so as part of the studio.
