What is the place of territorial & state authorities in the establishment of a Fab City approach?
Limited Capacity seats available

Each city, grouped by country and represented by local elected representative or FabCity contributors, can participate to this workshop. The intention is to have an action-oriented discussion about on the role of city councils and national governments to facilitate the involvement in a FabCity process. What is the role of city councils in a city engaged in the FabCity network? How to foster interactions  between cities? What can be the role of the national government? How can the government help cities (network, tools, standard)?

A Rural Biennale and ideas of Autonomous Ruralism
Limited Capacity seats available

The disruptive developments of dispersed infrastructure frames a moment in time where we can fundamentally reconceive of how we make, fund, and even conceptualize the world that surrounds us and how we engage with the possibilities of a new Autonomous Ruralism

Cities began as a simple collection of individuals sharing common elements. They have slowly evolved to include megageopolitical networks. These systems have been manifested by large, far reaching governmental and corporate built forms. With the emergence of dispersed infrastructural realities [mobiles, pvs, drones, etc], we stand at a disruptive moment – where the assumed reliance of human habitat upon top down forms is in question.

Our current reality of global capitalism has left our rural lands behind. Whether the vacancies of Italy, villagers in China, or small town America; the challenges facing the rural have yet to be resolved. But there are hints in constellation urbanism for alternative futures for our rural habitats. The necessity for greater logistical, ecological, and economical connections in these places to our new global reality can be seen in dispersed infrastructures and accompanying Autonomous Urbanisms. A new form of interdependent individuality is possible.
