REASSEMBLING THE CITY THREE ECOLOGIES AND URBAN DESIGN
According to Thrift and Amin, “cities are maelmstroems of affect”
(Thrift and Amin 2004)
The city is the place where sign-, event,- monetary, and social production are most intense.
What is produced in the city is repeated and reproduced at a minor scale in smaller towns and at the country side. The values of the city thus accumulate and spread like a virus.
Thus today where cities worldwide are growing it seems relevant to ask whether the existing urban life and urban culture could be changed for a more sustainable and green society.
This paper will argue that city is the place to start if we want to reassemble and change society. Inspired by Felix Guattari's, Three Ecologies, I argue that reassembling the city must take its point of departure in three ecologies.
