How do uncertain times affect design processes?

A growing number of reflections and design strategies concerning the transformation of public space is more and more in dialogue with uncertainty by noticing, staying with, and harnessing it, making room for the unexpected, testing through prototypes, developing open processes, paying attention to the ephemeral and the unfinished.

This seminar gathers researchers and practitioners involved in some of these new approaches across Europe. Which are the specificities of these experiences of investigation and practice? Is there a common ground between them? Can we find clues to a timely mindset? These are the main questions that will trigger and orientate the discussion.
