Heteropolis

Project

Actions that create heterogeneity reveal the possibility of common ground through urban interventions and cultural tensions that might be identified as queer, native, ethnic, generational, economic, industrial, ecological, and so on.

DESCRIPTION

Via this concept, AA (Adaptive Actions) questions what kinds of actions might open spaces up to indeterminacy, facilitate the hybridization of what already exists, and simultaneously value di­fference and mobilize new forms of urban relations, exchange, and diversity. AA also questions how heterogeneous spaces and actions might create common ground, that is to say how they might reveal radical intersections that continually reinvent the relational fabric that binds people, places, and things together. Heterogeneous spaces go beyond the representation of diversity and the collection of isolated fragments. By creating possibilities for indeterminacy these spaces act as triggers for creativity. Actions that create heterogeneity reveal the possibility of common ground through urban interventions and cultural tensions that might be identified as queer, native, ethnic, generational, economic, industrial, ecological, and so on.
