Territorial ecologies: a new ground for spatial justice
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Umeå School of Architecture.
2015 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper will argue that in order to understand contemporary processes of neoliberal urbanization and to revert its lucrative destruction, the planetary dimension of the phenomena needs to be tackled (Brenner, 2014), and the isotropic sea of urbanization needs to be reconfigured into sustainable territorial ecologies. Drawing on Neil Smith’s “Uneven Development” and Saskia Sassen’s “Territory, Authority, Rights”, a new understanding of the territory will be put forward. The research will look into territorial ecologies as a new conceptual and design tool, thus redefining the relation between architecture, geography and landscape. Strategies of intervention will be defined in order to reformulate a new model of city making oriented towards a collective re-appropriation and democratic management of specific contexts, paying special attention to notions of ecology and infrastructure.
