Decalogues For A New Informational Era (3/3)
Heptalogue : Multi-Cities; Prospective Program
From the city as a formal model to the city as an informational system
We can, thus, define a new action prospective program that has not only promoted, but continues driving, investigations, searches and strategies associated with this new dynamic, complex and informational status of the new multi-city.
1– City & Maps
Exploring a new expression (& representation)
The mapification and cartography of this kind of new scenario as a first step of research(es):
– N-CITY: the city as a complex and dynamic multi-dimension
Data-Maps: Datalayers, Datascapes & Diagramacities
2– City & Networks
Exploring a new kind of exo-organisation.
The lecture and articulation of a new geo-urban condition as a second step of research(es),
– MULTI-CITY (poli-polis): the city as a geo-urban land-net (eco, intra, infra and info structures).
LAND-LINKS: INTEGRATED SYSTEMS, MESH TERRITORIES
– Going > from an extra-urban territory to an inter-urban territory
from a back-territory to a mesh-territory.
> Strengthening and reactivating the actual and existent urban structures
(the multi-city, as a polycentric system)
> Coordinating the different matrix of landscape(s)
(the landscape, as an operative system)
> Articulating the different infrastructural networks and the systems of the mobility and programmation in new models of integrated planning.
(the networks, as inter-connective systems)
Concerting systems –global and local– destined to facilitate confederate formats, differential and “asymmetrically” balanced – cooperational – able to propose new formulations for the supra-municipal governances and competences.
3– City & Urban Patterns
Exploring a new kind of endo-(re)generation.
The urban reactivation (and redefinition) and the “inside development” as a third step of research(es).
– RE-CYTING: the city as an existing urban multi-fabric
RE-SETS & UR.UK. City (Urban Recycling, Urban Knowledge)
– Going > from a movement to the outside to a movement to the inside
from a a material growth to a relational (and sustainable) development
> Consolidating, reinforcing and reactivating qualitatively the centres
> Profiling and/or modelling the edges (perimeters, margins, surroundings, limits… launching operations of concentration or condensation city/city or operations of transition city/landscape)
> Linking (connecting, reseting and re-urbanizing) the disperse and peri-urban sprawls
4– Trough a <RE-ACTIVE> URBANISM: 7 <RE+> FACTORS
1– Recycling > Re-structuration / Re-use
2– Reconnexion > Link-Systems and Mesh-Plots
3– Reprogramation > Mixicity
4– Renaturalisation > Green factor
5– Relationality > Conviviality/ social Interaction
6– Relaunching > Creative economy – Talent prom.
7– Research > Prospection and innovation
5– City & Environment
Exploring new renewal agendas
The eco-systemic conditions of the city and its environmental optimisation as a fourth step of research(es).
– ECO-CITY: The city as a sustainable and sensitive environment
ENER-GRIDS: Self-Sufficient models and green vectors
6– CITY, SOCIETY AND SENS-TECHNOLOGIES
Exploring new creative interactions
The new sensorized and sensitive capacities of the urban contexts as a fifth step of research(es).
– CO-CITY: The city as a plural intelligence
CITIZENS and CITY-SENS: social communities and interactive networks
– Not only smart technologies but also slow-culture.
Strategic vectors, intelligent environments but, also, soft and sensitive actions, and new public relational devices….
7– Towards a new Empathy-City or EMPATHIC URBANISM
Able to work with a new paradigms associated to: IN & OUT, ENDO & EXO
Urban Recycling + Territorial Res(e/i)tting + Social Recalling
