TH3.10.16 Vertical Urbanisms and the Regulatory Production of “Urban Volumes” - Panel 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel aims at contributing to the debates about the diversity of “vertical urbanisms” (Harris, 2014) and vertical patterns of urbanization. It will do so by unpacking the complex relationship between regulatory frameworks that produce and distribute the rights to built in the air or underground with the dynamics of capital accumulation through the built environment. This panel seeks to explore the lesser-known diversity of policies, rules and regulations that allow for the vertical expansion of the urban fabric and the conflicts and controversies it entails with a socio-technical approach.
