Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism will host a four-day annual meeting of the AESOP thematic group of Public Spaces and Urban Cultures in Bucharest, Romania. The meeting is a second one under ‘Becoming Local’ theme, following an inspiring first meeting in Istanbul in November 2013. The aim of the ‘Becoming Local’ series is to share international, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives in studies of public spaces and urban cultures.
The objective of Bucharest meeting is to debate locally present issues within a broader context of the post-socialistic communities across Europe and wider. The field-visits, presentations and discussions of high quality work of scholars and practitioners working on the theme aim to offer an insight into the topic as well as provide valuable sources of inspiration for further improvements of both theoretical and practical approaches in the field.
