Counterfactual City Past Event
The Counterfactual City project presents a series of alternative visions for the future city that are predicated on a counterfactual notion, a singular ‘what if?’ scenario, that presents a radical alternative to the existing status quo of urban development. These propositions are not based on scenarios that are known, but ones that should, could or would have been. The Counterfactual City project seeks to operate outside of the stereotypical modes of urban planning policies and the representation of architecture. exploring these scenarios challenges notions of how civic engagement shapes the built environment and demonstrates the importance of design-led approaches to city-making.
This event will be presented through an exhibition of propositional posters, and a moderated symposium presented by architects and designers within RMIT Architecture’s Cities Cluster, hosted by The Capitol RMIT.
