Planning Unplanned
Towards a New Function in Society


€31.82 (excl. VAT)

The financial crisis has spawned a raft of (new) economic models based on cooperative interests and calling for a reconsideration of our values system. Within the context of deindustrialization, deregulation and privatization in urban planning in the last 15 years not only architects and urban planners but increasingly artists are assuming a key role in restructuring cities.
In this book Barbara Holub together with international practitioners and theorists from art, urbanism, philosophy, anthropology and sociology but also politicians and administration officers explores the significance of artistic practices counteracting the investororiented (urban) planning and examines what options are offered by the new, transdisciplinary role of urban practitioner.
