'Blackboxes are Actually Orange'
Research Areas
  • Architecture,
  • Architecture of the city
An ?invisible city? or ?black box? runs parallel to the day-to-day surface of Aarhus, remaining silent, unnoticed. Paradoxically, this invisible space is where many of the most relevant decisions concerning the city are made: on the one hand, the ?black box? is where Aarhus agrees on their relationships with nature, where the resources that form its urban metabolism are managed and distributed. On the other hand, it is where many subaltern socio-political relationships remain concealed. In short, Aarhus? ?black box? is the collection of architectures where nature is urbanised, and where certain governance frameworks are fixed and inscribed. And, in spite of all this, it has mostly remained invisible. What happens if we open the urban ?black box?? Can we rethink Aarhus? urban political ecology by making visible what used to be invisible? Can we find some architectural tools to open up the possibility of new forms of civic participation and engagement? Can we tackle other cohabitation frameworks within today?s cities challenges?
