Creative Urban Methods

A transdisciplinary toolkit for mapping and analysing urgent issues around infrastructures in public spaces

In order to allow citizens to engage with, and work collaboratively toward, (more) sustainable urban futures, we need awareness of the infrastructures that co-shape our private and public lives, their interrelations, and one’s own participatory position within these networks. To enable this ‘infrastructural thinking’ and the co-creative processes around it, this project develops a transdisciplinary toolkit for creative urban methods. As a seed money project for the Tranforming Infrastructures for Sustainable Cities hub, we aim to create a robust methodology for research into (futures for) sustainable urban infrastructures through a productive exchange between the social sciences, geosciences and the humanities.
