MOBILISING THE PERIPHERY - #5 Focus Europe - Invitation to the Symposium on Friday, 27 April and Saturday, 28 April 2018


Dates: Friday, 27 April 2018, 6.30 pm and Saturday, 28 April 2018, 10 am – 1 pm
Place: ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory, Christinenstr. 18-19, 10119 Berlin

Within the past decade, many European municipalities have attempted to remedy problems in social housing estates on their urban fringes with new planning concepts that integrate the provision of employment, recreation, affordable housing, cultural infrastructure and mobility; often seeking out new co-production structures with local inhabitants and actors to deliver these infrastructures and services. In this context, urban planners and architects are increasingly asked to provide proposals that think beyond basic spatial provision.

This fifth symposium within the ANCB & Schindler collaborative research project on urban periphery invites reflection on these attempts, and whether they are transferrable to the other manifestations of European periphery mentioned above. It also continues the central enquiry theme on the potential role of self-initiated or ‘informal’ strategies in this context. The urgency of the periphery is not only about preventing further marginalisation. Ultimately, it is about turning the situations into an advantage for the local inhabitants, and for the wider city.

Urban peripheries - such as informal cities, barrios and suburbs - are typically perceived to present only great challenges. With the project Mobilising the Periphery, ANCB and the Schindler Transit Management Group set out to stimulate new ways of thinking, to question the given preconditions of current development and to initiate a discourse on urban realities at the periphery. The aim of the project is to cross-connect new approaches and insights within a widening network and to archive and share best-practice examples with a global audience, thus creating a new public community for urban peripheries worldwide.

The subject is explored and interpreted from a range of perspectives prevalent in cities today, including examples of physical periphery – on the edge of the city (ghettos, suburbs, segregated housing estates), unregulated periphery – outside of the formal masterplan (slums, barrios, informal cities), and social periphery – on the margins of society (homeless, disabled, elderly, ethnic minorities).

Four types of periphery, exemplified by four case studies  – Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, China and Europe – in connection with participation and social justice are discussed.
