Urban Planning for Resilient Cities

The workshop will introduce City Resilience and its relationship to Integrated planning. It will consider the issues faced by actual cities in light of challenges posed by the stresses of mass urbanization, climate change, and unexpected shocks. Participants will be provided with a brief, reflecting political context, economic and social environment, as well as the particular challenges and attributes of the city. They will collaborate to establish a vision for a city, to analyze problems and defining spatial solutions for the city. The aim is for participants to emerge from the exercise with a clearer understanding of what resilience means in the context of a city system. Specifically, they should have developed an understanding allowing them to navigate the emerging and overwhelming language, tools and methodologies to better understand the opportunities associated with the need for resilient cities.

The Future of Institutional Buildings

as global populations are becoming more urbanized, public and institutional buildings are rapidly evolving away from exclusive, stand-alone developments and becoming more integrated players in the creation of vibrant urban neighborhood destinations. Through a dynamic, 2-day workshop, we will challenge participants of different backgrounds (i.e. Architects, Urban Planners, government official, Developers etc.)  to work within integrated teams to program and design a hypothetical mixed-use institutional development that concurrently addresses societal, economic, environmental and urban planning issues at both a macro neighborhood and specific site scale.  Participants will gain insights on how a new model of public and institutional developments can affect the urban landscape not only in form but also can improve the health and welfare of the communities they serve, be a catalyst for urban revitalization and a viable model for emerging public/private developments. Each team will be expected to collaborate, brainstorm and develop a planning solutions to be presented to all the teams from which a preferred scheme will be selected by all participants. This preferred solution will then be developed on the second-day workshop with each team focusing on the development of a specific portion of the selected design. The workshops will culminate in a final presentation which will then be given by the participants to a selected jury of critics (TBD by SNCI).  It is intended that from this workshop participants will emerge as champions within their own respective communities to engage both public and private entities to rethink how public and institutional projects can be developed and implemented where they live.

Technology thinking applied to social innovation  

Future Kit is a workshop methodology with creative tools for envisioning the future. It helps teams address future challenges by leveraging creativity in emerging technology. In the course of an afternoon, your team will develop creative solutions by simulating use of future technologies. The workshop helps you generate innovative scenarios in a fast-paced, high-energy setting. Participants are guided through a series of game-like exercises, called canvases. Each canvas presents a distinct perspective on technology. Canvases are self-guided and executed in groups of three people. In the final canvas, participants assemble a trio of cards to build a viable sci-fi prototype. The exercise is designed to help develop exponential, long-term thinking. To conclude the workshop, all groups showcase their prototypes by describing their concepts and how future technologies are to be used.
