Studio Citizen and Resilience
2A Co-Producing In-Between Practices
Exploring Bucharest as a city in constant conflict between community and authorities, we define an in-between space of resilient and resourceful actions. Focusing on the actions of the civic group Lacul Tei, the Tei Community Centre, and its current latent state, this project proposes a mechanism to support the long term co-production of in between practices, citizen empowerment, and self-development. Positioning the design team as Urban Curators, a strategy is created by rearranging existing actors, resources, relations, and actions. By contrary, what is important is the process and how the spaces, activities and relations developed constitute the framework of collaboration, and promote self-managed development, based on the community’s internal needs.
