Webinar Invite: Spatial Justice: reflecting on the formal-informal interface in contemporary architecture and urbanism
The CST is hosting a series of Webinars on "Complexity & Resilience insights in a time of transition".
Informality is a central challenge to contemporary architecture and urbanism. There is a need for a critical theoretical position that can understand and address the formal and informal as a continuum, beyond stigmatization and able to reveal the complex effects and action of these practices. In this webinar we will discuss the notion of “in[formal]ity as a dialectic whole to replace the dichotomy of formal vs. Informal”, as developed by Perold. This position allows a better understanding of the continuous production of urban space through both formal and informal practices, through top-down planning and every day appropriations by different actors.

Presenter: Dr Rudolf Perold, PrArch (Cape Peninsula University of Technology)
Discussants: Rika Preiser (CST)
