Cities and the lives of inhabitants are intrinsically connected: both give meaning to and form one another. As citizens and visitors of cities move through urban spaces, how are their actions and reactions molded by their encounters with the urban environment? How does the methodology of placemaking play a role in understanding the connections and tensions between people and space?
The three-week programme will consist of (guest) lectures, workshops and excursions within and outside of Amsterdam. In parallel ethnographic research sessions, students work in interdisciplinary groups researching and developing a placemaking strategy for a selected site/community.
