SEMINAR: (In)Flexible Cities – The Cambridge CRASSH City Seminar, Cambridge, UK

(In)Flexible Cities (The Cambridge CRASSH City Seminar) meets on Tuesdays (4 times per term) at the new CRASSH Building (7 West Road, Sidgwick Site, Cambridge) from 5pm until 7pm. All are welcome.

Program: (In)Flexible Cities
Cities are as immobile as they are restless. Revolutions, disasters and visionary masterplans can transform cities, but they can also leave urban fabrics practically untouched. Events of the past year alone have made plain the extent to which dramatic change and stubborn continuity constitute interdependent urban phenomena. In 2011/2012, the City Seminar combines disciplinary perspectives, intellectual themes and geographical areas to examine the relationships and tensions between flux and stasis in the city.
