For the past four years, the Laboratory of Critical Urbanism at the European Humanities University in Vilnius has organized interdisciplinary applied summer schools in the town of Visaginas. Here’s what they found out about life in a former mono-functional town.
Resilience Lab Timisoara (RO)
Forming a knowledge network on urban resilience and mapping tools and solutions to the city’s vulnerabilities
What does an urban healing grid look like? #TeamTimisoara is exploring the concept in the The Healing Grid Workshops, a pilot project of their newly created Resilience Lab Timisoara. For two weeks, urban planners, IT specialists, landscape designers, engineers, geographers, academics and citizens are working on solutions for expanding the green infrastructure of the city. With workshops on spatial analysis, 3D mapping, a landscape study and a tactical intervention, they want to transform Timisoara’s grid of drainage channels into a blue-green network with landscaping, ecological, recreational and health promoting values. ⠀
