Booklet > JUST Sleeping District? Lazdynai for Lunatics, Vilnius, August 2013

JUST Sleeping District? Lazdynai for Lunatics is the practical element of the course “The Production of Space in the Digital Age” on the Masters of Critical Urban Studies at the European Humanities University in Vilnius. The course explores both the potential that digital mapping technologies offer for critical studies of spatial issues, and also considers how digital technologies are impacting on ways of perceiving, managing and experiencing spaces.

PUF at PEAR magazine

Article > From a Patchwork of Territories to a Network of Collective Spaces , PEAR magazine (Paper for Emerging Architectural Research), Issue 5: Medellín Through a Kaleidoscope, London, January 2013.

The radical transformation of Medellín’s cityscape has been recognised internationally, through dramatic pictures of cable-cars flying over shantytowns, spectacular Library Parks designed by prominent architects and most recently the installation of a public escalator in the most violent barrio of the city. Furthermore, the Medellín-model has become a desirable path of development for many Latin American cities, embedded in social inequality, weak infrastructure and high rates of criminality.

PUF Remix_Carrito Cultural-Dia de Playita_video

Medellin, Colombia, Aug. 2012, in collaboration with El Puente_Lab

Cultural activation of the Medellín River has been under agenda of the project Carrito Cultural (mobile cultural infrastructure), exploring potential of tactical interventions at particular spots in order to change citizen’s perceptions of the abandoned and hardly accessible area right in the middle of the vibrant metropolis. By inviting street-artist collective Deúniti to paint large-scale mural at the one of the river sedimentations, atmosphere of the conventional city-beach has been staged, involving homeless people that live at the location and inviting random citizens that use the river occasionally for the bike-based recreation. After capturing this unusual situation, local percussion collective Alibombo has borrowed us sound background produced at the car’s cemetery.
