Inahbiting Controversy

Proposals for the agenda:
City conflict processes.
Regarding the analysis of urban projects working with the paradigm of conflicts’ resolution, we propose, instead, to work with the paradigm of inhabiting them. Introducing mechanisms that don’t simplify reality, but take part in the controversies, may offer complex design answers that are symmetrical to reality. We propose not to eradicate conflicts, but to use them as references, as a mechanism of evolution, that makes the managing of public space more complex.
