Book review. Make_Shift City. Renegotiating the urban commons
Francesca Ferguson has compiled a great collection of stories, essays and interviews in this new book, Make_Shift City, which represents the latest addition to a growing literature on the new conditions of urban development. This implies a mix of uncertainty, austerity, insecurity and temporality as the landscape for re-imagining the city. These conditions are present, to greater or lesser extent, in Western cities as newcomers after the financial crisis and its subsequent impact on urban development. As institutions try to understand how to face these new conditions, a wide experience of practices and appropriation projects, developed sometimes as outsiders in the previous economic stage, appear as an adequate response to give social value to neglected plots and facilities.

Marcallo con Casone è un piccolo paese di circa 6000 anime a una ventina di km da Milano. È dove sono cresciuto e ho vissuto fino ai 19 anni.

Marcallo con Casone a piedi lo giri massimo in un’ora. Cioè se vai dal Cascinello (est) al Cimitero (ovest) e dalla Ciclabile (nord) alla Foseco (sud)…

Dutch art collective Observatorium's “Waiting for the River” is a meditation on time, history, and anticipation. In preparation for the planned flooding of the Emscher River (currently a sewage canal) a decade away, the group built a 125-foot-long structure that’s at once a bridge and a small village that includes a hostel, kitchen, bathroom, and meeting space. In dedicating themselves to a distant future, the group has created a series of spaces that amplify the immediate, perpetual act of waiting. Via.
