Hybrid City is an international biennial event dedicated to exploring the emergent character of the city and the potential transformative shift of the urban condition, as a result of ongoing developments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and of their integration in the urban physical context. It aims to promote dialogue and knowledge exchange among experts drawn from academia, as well as researchers, artists, designers, advocates, stakeholders and decision makers, actively involved in addressing questions on the nature of the technologically mediated urban activity and experience. The second installment of the Hybrid City, that took place in 2013 boasted seven keynote speakers, sixty-eight paper presentations and diverse parallel events, that were documented in the printed volume of proceedings.

Temporary use is a learning process of accommodating innovation and adapting needs and capacities to available resources. It offers benefits to owners and users, in terms of security, maintenance, anchor tenants and social vibe on the one side, and affordable rents and spaces on the other. And it can help shaping new forms of cooperation between public administrations, private property owners and citizen initiatives. This article, based on the authors’ work in the URBACT knowledge transfer program Temporary Use as a Tool for Urban Regeneration and other initiatives and research, looks at a few examples to explore the conditions and potentials of temporary use in regenerating European cities and giving communities better access to urban spaces. Our article on temporary use at the URBACT website.
Interview at The European Urban Knowledge Network’s website. Levente Polyak and Daniela Patti, founders of Eutropian: “…civic participation brings with it alternative catalysts, energies and resources into the design and maintenance of urban public spaces.” Read the 1st and 2nd part of the interview at the EUKN website.
Thanks to the support of Advocate-Europe, we continue our research into emerging economic models of community-based urban development projects. The calls for the workshops in Madrid, Rome and Budapest will open soon! Stay tuned at http://eutropian.org and Eutropian!
The hills around the north-eastern Hungarian town of Eger are famous for their vineyards and wine production. Some of the nation’s favourite wines originate here, yet not all of the land is currently in use. Upon hearing of a long-abandoned parcel at the Érseki vineyard, winemaker Ferenc Csutorás grew curious about the unidentified grapevines he found there. Together with psychiatrist Imre Csernus and graphic designer Péter Mészáros, he harvested the grapes. The resulting wine surprised them all – it was one of the finest they had ever tasted. They decided to save the grapevines by relocating them to the neighbouring hill, and to share the wine with their visitors.

There is an increasing demand for participation when it comes to determining the re-use of post-industrial sites. Former employees and local residents want to be part of the decision making process regarding what should be done with examples industrial heritage. This process is related to the wider transformation of the city as a whole and the planning that shapes this development. This discussion will explore the benefits of participation for both planning and production of architecture as well that for for heritage conservation. Four experts with experience of different cases from across Europe will help us to understand the possibilities and implications of participation as a method for re-use of the past.
