Spatial Agency

more than green- spatial agency

Spatial Agency is a project that presents a new way of looking at how buildings and space can be produced. Moving away from architecture’s traditional focus on the look and making of buildings, Spatial Agency proposes a much more expansive field of opportunities in which architects and non-architects can operate. It suggests other ways of doing architecture.”

This project shows an interesting database in which a series of bottom-up urbanism cases are included. From Curitiba to Cristiania, this website classified a countless list of social interventions that helps us to understand the importance of the social action when building a city. This project also includes references to other research projects as well as bibliography about this issue. Since the interventions included are about how communities are able to create and manage urban realities, Spatial Agency is likely to help us all to understand better what is the actual meaning of social sustainability.
