Re-City 2017: “(Im)Possible Cities”  2nd International City Regeneration Congress

Tampere 24.8.2017 - 25.8.2017

Our distinguished keynote speakers are Dr. Hon. FRIBA Lucy Bullivant from United Kingdom and professor David Pinder from Roskilde University, Denmark. We also have three splendid Finnish lecturers, professors Laura Kolbe, Marketta Kyttä and Panu Lehtovuori.

Re-City 2017 Congress is organized as a back-to-back conference with ALUS Conference (link) having the same theme (Im)Possible Cities. If you intend to participate in both events, please register in them separately (one day in one and two days in another).

The topic “(Im)Possible Cities” allows for a wide range of approaches concerning city regeneration and the challenges implied in the visioning, planning and construction of cities. The congress seeks especially for good and bad examples of real city regeneration cases. However, more theoretical and imaginary approaches are also welcomed. The congress has five tracks:

Black Track
Black track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of dystopic and anarchic features, warfare related issues, urban conflicts and destructive behavior, as well as pollution and contaminant issues in city regeneration.

Blue Track
Blue track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of water management and other water related issues like urban waterfronts, water energy, water traffic and floating buildings in city regeneration. In addition, the cultural and philosophical approaches concerning the role of water and sky in city regeneration are welcomed.

Brown Track
Brown track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of industrial buildings, brownfields, architectural decay and patina, urban fallows, railway stations and airports, as well as temporary uses in city regeneration.

Green Track
Green track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of green spaces like parks, urban meadows and landscapes, as well as health issues and ecological aspects in city regeneration.

Rainbow Track
Rainbow track calls for abstracts dealing with all other kinds of impossible and possible examples of city regeneration, for instance gender, urban minority or mixed use issues.
