Book release: Direkter Urbanismus / Direct Urbanism

After more than twelve years of transdisciplinary practice, the book designed by Lupo & Burtscher, Bolzano, and Schienerl D/AD, Vienna, introduces the extensive work of »transparadiso«: The oeuvre ranges here from a committed architectural practice down to diverse artistic-urban interventions which, now methodically sharpened as »direct urbanism« lift the dichotomy between planning and urban activism. The desire for a collective topos that is supported by collaborative actions and the potential of macro-utopias is common to all the different projects.

An interview with Paul O’Neill and Mick Wilson as well as a text by Jane Rendell link the discourse to the projects with their diverse contexts.
