AESOP Thematic Group

AESOP Grupo Temático

Espacios públicos y Culturas Urbanas

Über Die AESOP Thematic Group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures wurde 2010 durch Sabine Knierbein ( TU Wien), Ceren Sezer (TU Delft) und Chiara Tornaghi (University of Coventry) ins Leben gerufen und formal in den Strukturen der Association of European Schools of Planning etabliert. Ihr gehören nunmehr ca. 80 internationale Wissenschaftlerinnen und Forschende an, deren spezielles Interesse dem Themen öffentlicher Raum und Stadtkultur innerhalb der Planungstheorie und raumbezogenen Sozialforschung gilt.
Aim (english) The main goal is to initiate a new thematic group within AESOP community: Urban Cultures and Public Spaces. With this thematic group, we aim to better understand the relational nature of public spaces by using different concepts of urban culture as analytical perspectives.

  • To encourage studies on evolving urban cultures and renewed intellectual and practical challenges that these cultures pose to the way public spaces are used, interpreted, designed, and taught,
  • To strengthen the analytical connection between studies on urban cultures and public spaces within and beyond the AESOP planning community – thus, we want to reach policy makers, local communities, urban activists and other social actors,
  • To share and exchange different disciplinary approaches and experiences in practice and theory on the related subjects through research activities and workshops at a European scale.
Principios de Investigación
  • Principios de prácticas culturales e intelectuales con relación a la planificación urbana
  • Culturas urbanas emergentes y prácticas socio-espaciales en espacios públicos
  • Revision de los formatos y currículas de la formación académica en planeación en relación a los temas cultura urbana y espacio público, que superan las aproximaciones sectoriales de disciplinas en particular

How do we work (English) With these three strands of research highlighted above, this thematic group encourages a systematic discussion on theory and practice of urban cultures and public spaces within the AESOP planning community. By doing so, we aim to initiate further collaborations in building and implementing a change in contemporary fragmented research agendas regarding the interface of both thematic fields, to foster experimental and innovative programmes in planning education as well as committing ourselves to a range of publications for the planning community.
