Learning from... Disorder

How can we regulate, design, and facilitate what cannot be anticipated but will surely improve our cities?

How can cities evolve, grow and innovate when urban planning policies are constraining? How can we design the unexpected? How can we experiment in planning?
Considering that placemaking is to zoning what creative bureaucracy is to red tape, this session will showcase a conversation between Charlot Schans from Placemaking Europe, Robin Abad Ocubillo (San Francisco Planning Department), who shaped Places for People, SF’s Placemaking Ordinance, and Pablo Sendra (UCL – Bartlett School of Planning), co-author with Richard Sennet of the recently published book Designing Disorder, Experiments and Disruptions in the City (Verso, 2020)
