Lecture Summary:
Micro-Urbanism describes new modes of operating in the city and architecture’s ability to change the way we live, work, and socialise. Beyond just size, the concept foregrounds the relativity between program and perception, questioning the very elements of architecture and their assumed configuration. The concept will be discussed through a series of design projects that demonstrate how owning/sharing, division/continuity, and expansion/contraction increase the value of space through measures of quality not quantity.
