Pop-up Environments @ Paradigmatic City Conference, May 2019 in Istanbul

Project team member Mirjam Stocker (Institute of Landscape planning) attended the The Paradigmatic City Conference that was held in Istanbul from May 8th to 10th, 2019.  Transforming Cities was the focus of this year’s conference and an opportune occasion to present our (pop-up housing) project. She presented the project and preliminary results, summarized by her and Gerda Schneider, in the session ‘Urbanization and future cities’. The participation of scholars of very different disciplines led to interesting and enriching discussions. Especially interesting for our project were contributions such as on Boox: A framework for container settlements (Belinda Torus, Asena Kumsal Şen Bayram, Oğuz Orkun Doma, Sinan Mert Şener) and on The “new” inhabitant of the city: changing urban dynamics in Gaziantep, Turkey (Pınar Karababa Kayagil).
The participation of Mirjam was kindly facilitated by a travel grant of BOKU’s Equal Opportunities Working Party (Arbeitskreis für Gleichbehandlungsfragen (AKGL)).
