31/03/17 Atlas Show. Luxury – Spatial Politics of Comfort


What is luxury to different residents of the city? What typologies of luxury can be found and in which way do they express themselves? How is the luxury of the city produced? Which spatial policy decisions and legislation are involved? How do city inhabitants want to live together and what normative or ethical aspects should apply? What government techniques affect the distribution and circulation of urban population? How can issues of welfare, well-being, and diversity be addressed? Through which activities, places, and things is the city's luxury articulated and how does this occur?

The first semester of students of the Urban Design M.Sc. programme 16/17 show their research done within the annual theme Luxury – Spatial Politics of Comfort.
