We lecture and teach on all unversity levels, but we always work with partners outside academia and regard our research based in and aiming at the networks of city-makers: people who practice the co.city in their everyday. When you are looking for a research partner or want us to teach in you setting, please contact us.
A co.city builds on the basic idea that the city belongs and is actively made by all its inhabitants. To foster this processes of co.making the city, new governing practices are produced through cultural activities like open air cinema and neighborhood walks but also through design and build activities like building of public furniture, urban gardening which could transition into long term developments of public spaces and new forms of urban governance.
These different co.activities have different qualities of commitment, of participation and also different time-frames. To consider these different qualities both in terms of organization and time frames, and to develop an idea what challenges have to be considered on which level we developed a process model, which brings together four levels or principles that should not be seen in a linear model, but more as complementary ways of practicing a co.city.
