Macro/Micro Architecture

The RCA is hosting a series of Anglo-Dutch evening debates called Shared Territories on contemporary issues in design and architecture.

In response to globalisation and its inherent mobility of capital and labour, two urban development strategies have emerged in force. The first, frequently focussed on an image-based approach, is about rebranding cities; the second goes for broad brush master planning. What are the merits of these approaches, and how does each of these relate to much more strategic micro-design initiatives evident that go hand in hand with educational and information exchange between stakeholders and citizens? Now that so many cities and regions wish to tackle their post-industrial voids and territories, make new cultural capital out of the land and solve housing problems, we would also like to identify ways in which design procurement processes can be broadened, or are already changing, to take account of emerging patterns of social dynamics.
