Public Guest Lecture: Livable City for Who?

September 20, 2016 - 16:15-18:00

Place-Making and Cultural Heritage in the era of Fragmented Urbanism

Public SEASS lecture by Dr. Rita Padawangi from the Asian Urbanisms Cluster, ARI, National University of Singapore

What is cultural heritage? What is livable city? These terms are important to understand in the context of contemporary cities. How do place-making and cultural heritage contribute to making a city livable? While current livable city indicators have their merit, many cities in rapidly developing countries are growing to become more fragmented, in which citizens in one neighborhood may have different aspirations of a livable city compared to others. Aspirational urban governance systems that do not recognize these fragmentations, as observed in the examples of Jakarta, Bandung and Surabaya in this short presentation, run the risk of bulldozing cultural heritage, as one city may contain several –and fragmented- understandings of heritage.

Welcome and commentary by Dr. Rasmus Christian Elling, Global Urban Studies, UCPH

The lecture is organized by SEASS, ToRS and ADI and is part of the Southeast Asia Signature Series (SEASS)
