Latent city: Potential infrastructures in the new urban economy
Master of Architecture
What are the procedures, bases, effects and potentials of small, collective activity? What are the economies of such activity? And what chances of propagation for more activity exist within these systems? Gathering places, temporal events, empty land and urban policy loopholes are implicated in this project to generate short-term activity zones in East Downtown Houston with the intention of encoding longer-term territorial scenarios there as an alternative to conventional forms of city development.
