Hands-On Urbanism 1850 – 2012 - The Right to Green

Vienna, Austria, Hong Kong, Paris,

Sport & Wellness, Ville,

Exhibition,

The urban issues revealed by "Hands-On Urbanism" come from below, and as such make pressing new demands on urban development and the use of resources, to which architects must respond.



Hands-On Urbanism 1850 – 2012 - The Right to Green
"Hands-On Urbanism" refers to spaces and dwellings built by people in collectives and movements.
The exhibition open until June 25 at Architekturzentrum in Vienna offers an overview of the movement through 19 international case studies by curator Elke Krasny in different cities around the world: Chicago, Leipzig, Vienna, Bremen, New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Porto Alegre, Havana and Quito.

The exhibition looks at citizens? re-appropriation of land in urban spaces, stories of social cohesion and independent organisations that have overcome crisis situations with grassroots solutions.
These small projects have in some cases brought about great change. Situations which force people to reconsider the role of the architect, social responsibility, use of resources, infrastructure policy and urban planning regulations.
