Dutch Design Award Winner

The UrgentCity project was awarded a Dutch Design Award in the Design Research category.

As the jury explained:

In the extremely dynamic context of the urban domain where many interests are at stake, a well-developed vocabulary and conceptual framework are essential.

As the UrgentCity team we are very happy that the project's approach resonates an urgent need and look forward to continue developing UrgentCity in the future.

UrgentCity at Strelka Institute

On the 15 and 16 of August, Amateur Cities ran a workshop at Strelka Institute, called A New Vocabulary - How to talk about Urbanism, based on the format we developed for the UrgentCity project. It was great to see how the meaning of words changes in different geographical and socio-political context and have a bit of insight on what young people in Moscow think about urbanism.

Read more about the workshop on the Strelka website or have a look at the pictures.

We would like to thank Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie for making it possible.
