JKT WS 2017 SYMPOSIUM – Global Scenarios: IMMINENT COMMONS

Multimedia Room, Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering UI

In 1993. Le Corbusier and a few other members of the Congres International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) proposed the principles of the Athens Charter. It was a document aimed to orchestrate the technologies of the artificial into a proposal for the future of cities and designate the formation of human activities around four urban functions: work, residence, leisure, and transport. However, this human-centered approach appears unable to address the current problems as cities have become sources of extreme inequality and environmental degradation. Since from the time of its birth, the city has been held together by the commons. We are challenged by the questions where the imminent commons are and how to reconstruct them as an instrument of ecological awareness? How the imminent commons become the source of revision of urban practice?
