Speculative urban futures. An undisciplinary attempt at staying with the trouble

josefin_wangel
Seminarium
Breakfast 8.15-8.45 Seminar 8.45-9.45

Contemporary ideas and practices of sustainable urban development are firmly based in a rationalist problem-solving paradigm where sustainability is understood as harm reduction. Through self-driving cars, energy efficient buildings and green area factors, the negative impact of urban development and urban life is to be mitigated. From a planetary boundaries perspective however, these measures fall painstakingly short. Through a series of speculative and design-driven projects, Josefin Wangel and colleagues have explored how urban sustainability could look like should the planetary boundaries be taken seriously. Through re-presenting urban sustainability, speculative approaches help making visible some of the troubles that the predominant discourse of ecological modernization seek to silence, but can also point out new directions for innovation, policy-making, planning and design.
 
Josefin Wangel works as researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) where she spends most of her time researching ideas and practices of urban sustainability. She is particularly fond of combining speculative approaches, such as backcasting and design fiction, with critical systems analysis and socio-material theories.

The seminar is fully booked. Registration is no longer possible.
