Superblocks: an urban planning strategy for degrowth cities?
21. November 2020 um 18:00 – 19:30
Smarter Than Car (STC) is a not-for-profit interdisciplinary advocacy, research, curator and collaborative work group for future urban mobility and post carbon degrowth urbanism. It believes that mobility is a key factor for prosperous urban transformation in light of climate chaos and related sustainability crises. For Smarter Than Car: Belen Iturralde, Elena Mali, Florian Lorenz and Matthieu Floret.
The session discusses the degrowth strategic potential of the superblock urban planning model “Superblock” for the social-ecological transformation of cities. Based on case studies from European cities (Barcelona, Berlin and Vienna), the session works towards a better strategic understanding of superblocks for degrowth transformation of cities. The workshop-discussion is structured around the analysis of the strengths, potentials, weaknesses and threats of the superblock model. The workshop is an occasion for different actors interested and/or active in degrowth urban planning issues to connect with each other.
This event is part of the Vienna Degrowth Days organised by Degrowth Vienna.
