As part of the Month of Urban Design, on 20 November the workshop Unlearning Urban Design takes place.
Questioning the universality of design education and practice. Discussing the risks of overlooking complex realities, marginalising local communities and indigenous design, and instead legitimizing other knowledge and values. Following a presentation on the intention of ‘Water-Sensitive Urban Design’ and its contestations in Kozhikode, India, the workshop will shift to a group discussion in which personal experience and practice will be reflected upon in light of decolonising design and what needs to change to facilitate that endeavor.
The workshop is hosted by Raquel Hadrich Silva & Geert van der Meulen, Section of Urban Design, Department of Urbanism
