Vague Terrain: Cityscene
The online journal Vague Terrain has just published an edition under the theme "Cityscene", and it's well worth investigating. The introduction to the edition begins "Even at their most mundane, cities are fantastic assemblages. They aggregate capital and experience, accelerate culture and interaction, incubate negotiations between various stakeholders and nurture a wonderful, unresolvable tension that permeates both geographic and regulatory space".
The press release states that "the issue indexes a wide range of strategies for representing and visualizing urban space".
Cities Re-imagined 1, the first BUU conference, takes place on 8 - 9 May at Atelier Nord/Kunstnernes Hus Oslo, and the programme is now fixed. Full details will be published in the very near future.
