Publisher's description: Urban Change investigates the massive change processes in urban space in a world of rapidly progressing urbanization. In the face of the complexity of this transformation, internationally renowned experts analyze these changes from different perspectives. Scientifc results from change theory research are interlinked with practices of inclusive space production, as are artistic practices in the public realm with new urban design approaches. The book describes transformation processes that are driven by artistic interventions and the desire for social inclusion, and discusses new models of urbanization that make reference to informal cities, refugee camps and ephemeral urbanism.
