Rotterdam or anywhere - Urban landscapes, possible futures

by
Blise Orr

The online workshop/discussion springs from a three-month research project that took place as a hybrid in Glasgow and Rotterdam Feb-May 2021 working with the Independent School for the City looking at Superdivercity, Crime and Climate Change in Rotterdam as a par pro toto for other cities around the world. The students have decided to show their findings in a discussion surrounding these topics. Although the work was conducted in Rotterdam, it can be discussed in regards to almost any city with participants from Germany, France, Helsinki, Glasgow, Italy and Belgium.

There will also be a three-day workshop held in Glasgow at a later date (most likely July) to interrogate these themes with a group of people (students, locals, anyone interested in using public space) - this workshop is funded by Creative Scotland. We hope to enable people to reconsider how they look at the city and with what bias their eyes may be trained towards. We uncover themes such as Cathedral thinking, Eco-modernism, Denialism and Post-humanist thought as well as look at the streets of the city a little differently hoping to open up the discussion to look at possible, more inclusive and outdoor futures for the city of Glasgow especially after Covid-19.
