Direct Urbanism – Book launch by transparadiso

  • Thu 12 Dec 2013
  • 7:00PM

To celebrate the launch of transparadiso’s new book Direct Urbanism, we are hosting a launch event on the evening of Thursday 12th December.

Join us for talks by transparadiso’s Barbara Holub and Paul Rajakovics (Vienna) and responses by the Bartlett’s Yeoryia Manolopoulou and Jane Rendell, and Goldsmiths’ Andrea Phillips.

About the book

After more than twelve years of transdisciplinary practice Direct Urbanism (designed by Lupo & Burtscher, Bolzano, and Schienerl D/AD, Vienna) introduces the extensive work of transparadiso. Their oeuvre ranges from a committed architectural practice to diverse artistic-urban interventions which, methodically sharpened as direct urbanism,
transgresses the dichotomy between planning and urban activism. The desire for a collective topos that is supported by collaborative actions and the potential of macro-utopias is common to all the different projects. An interview with Paul O’Neill and Mick Wilson as well as a text by Jane Rendell link the discourse to the projects with their diverse contexts.

The event will be followed by drinks in the Lobby Gallery and the book, Direct Urbanism, will be on sale for a special price of £20.00.**
