Building associations are joint ventures by several people who want to redevelop owner-occupied districts or rebuild existing neighbourhoods. A symposium organised by the Bergische Universität Wuppertal will be discussing the motivation, the conditions and the potential with which they do this.



 

Building accommodation as a joint venture has been an established practice in many towns for some time. All sorts of groups of people invest in a joint building venture - and for them it is more than just a question of merely meeting their accommodation needs. It is a matter of shaping integral community life that connects living as well as delivering basic food stuffs, small-scale production, physical proximity, local cycles and commercial and civil society economies.

The organisers of this one-day symposium wish to pursue the question of how, when developing districts collectively, space, infrastructure and responsibility can be divided up. Invited speakers (architects, town and planning bodies, cultural theoreticians and authors) will speak about how town development based on expansive growth and high consumption of resources can be overcome.

Registration is required. Standard price for attendance is 30 euros. Student price is 10 euros.
