Naples Event: An Architectural and Political Response to the Crisis

Naples Event: An Architectural and Political Response to the Crisis

In the context of the ongoing financial crisis, cities and citizens are going through profound and as yet uncharted transformations. Tomorrow in Naples, Italy, UN-Habitat’s World Urban Forum will bring together mayors, international organizations, governments and civil- society organizations to discuss the Urban Future.

This debate aims to blur the boundaries between designers and politicians; researchers and eco- nomists, to highlight new policies and practices which do not require funding from strained public coffers. Can new forms of city development be thought about without the contribution of private enterprise? Can the political and design worlds find “Common ground” in the face of urban decay and austerity? How can policy making and urban planning come together to bring about appropriate norms for improving urbanites’ lives? This will be one of the focus areas for the ANMA Architects’ new foundation ANMA-F.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Nicolas Michelin: Creative Directore of ANMA
  • Owen Hatherley: Author and Journalist, Guardian. Author of “Militant Modernism”
  • Pippo Ciorra: Senior curator of architecture at Rome’s MAXXI museum
  • Marcello Balbo: Researcher and Urban Planning Professor – IUAV Venice

Debate: An Architectural and Political Response to the Crisis Date: September 4th, 2012 Time: 20:00 – 00:00 Location: Napels, Italy Venue: Riot Studio; Via S. Biagio dei Librai, 39 80138 Napoli Contact: +39 081 195 22929
