In collaboration with El Puente Lab, platform for artistic and cultural production, Carrito Cultural has been developed as a mobile toolbox for the set of interventions along the river. It offers diverse spatial and programatic scenarios, which have aim to transform periphery character of the river through cultural inclusion. This bastardized vehicle serve both as receiver and emitter of location-based data and uses open-source mapping to visualize new cultural geographies.

Inability of Master Plan (based on infinite growth) to deal with the climate change asks for the socio-cultural shift and micro-urbanism strategies. Alternative infrastructures in the form of offline sharing, crowd-based finance models or low-tech energy producers, appear as a creative answer to urban uncertainties. PUF presented new forms of planning based on resources-sharing, DIY culture and self-made infrastructures, with an aim to provoke discussion about non-technocratic ways to deal with the climatic turbulence.

Both the form and content of the J.U.S.T. project are motivated by a desire to counter one of the effects of globalization, particularly visible in, though by no means limited to, Eastern Europe. This is the sense that development is only possible when international capital is interested in investing in a particular site. The challenge of the J.U.S.T. project is to reverse this logic – can jamming spaces on a local level act as a catalyst for urban transformations aiming at greater social justice? Urban interventions have long been utilized in critical or artistic approaches.What this project aims to do is test their potential for providing alternative development strategies for underused spaces without flirting with power structures.

As a part of guest seminar Click-Click Urbanism, E-Skimming and Mapping, urban interventions in post-socialist context of Vilnius were critically examined and practiced in public sphere. Focus was on vacant modernist heritage and administrative ignorance that leads to dilapidation and real-estate speculations. Three spaces of leisure (beer bar, public amphitheatre and sport hall) have been culturally jammed with an aim to build long-term strategy together with local interest groups, cultural institutions and policy makers.

Competition proposal for Kiki Blofeld location at the Spree River, Berlin, Jan 2011
Publicly accessible, open-air 1:1 showroom in the homeland of temporary use. BCTA represents incubator of vivid local temporary-use scene, in which knowledge exchange platform replace beach-bar concept. Time-based toolbox serves both as dynamic planning instrument and interface for advanced forms of participation.
Post-earthquake scenario-planning, Sichuan Area; cooperation with Tongji University Shanghai, Jan/Feb. 2009.
In post-earthquake planning procedures, ordinary real-estate logic and infrastructural investments reject new-formed needs of citizens. Balanced development without imposing final spatial outcome should involve all players of reconstruction on one table. That table, symbolically represented by a toolbox and its “ingredients”, serves as a communication device where all members are treated equally. Quality and taste of the “soup” depends on combination of “ingredients” and time management.

Scenario 2> Moving movie (Movie fragments projected on ruins of both sides of divided city and frozen scenes as an outcome)

The project „Evolutive City—Planning for Uncertain Cities“ was a comprehensive attempt to find innovative solutions to post-war complexities in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the light of temporary planning interventions. The project touches in its way upon several overlapping issues such as planning in a vague legal framework, structural changes in housing and land ownership, and various types of spatial abuse within a stringent economic and social framework. The project indirectly discusses a notion of „reconstruction,“ given the dynamics of the transitions that occurred in Bosnia and Herzegovina before, during and after the war.
