Event: Nutopia Symposium, Cardiff

Nutopia Symposium
2/3 April 2009 @ Cardiff, UK

“Nutopia: Exploring the Metropolitan Imagination is a mapping process which seeks to explore the possibility of re- imaging utopia in relation to ‘the city’. The ways in which we can challenge the idea that city centres are purely spaces of consumption; look at possibilities for non-economic exchange; examine tensions between resistance and commodification and look at how this impacts our personal lives; the possibility to reinvent our cities, to reclaim; to consider the redevelopment and ownership of cities in the face of privatization; city architecture ~ Cathedrals to commerce; the language of regeneration, place as a perceptual landscape informed by a linguistic architecture.
