<nettime> rel:active architecture


we infiltrated an architecture congress in mexico.
the theme was the preservation and revitalization of the historical 
centers.
while most people talked about restoring monuments and making beautiful 
buildings we suggested interventions using digital technologies to 
implement relational architectures and urban practices that could get 
people involved in the urban tissues, stimulate, inspire and create 
opportunities.

you can find some additional info and a PDF of the theories we 
presented. The PDF is only in italian for now, but it will be available 
in english, spanish and french by the end of next week, as we are 
expanding it to turn it into a book called "rel:active architecture" 
that will be freely available on the internet.

We will also be designing a series of lectures to be held on the subject 
in various universities and institutions in Europe and central/south 
america.

I would love to hear from people that are interested in these issues to 
receive comments and contributions and to see if we can get some of you 
involved.

best,
