Urban Reports - urban strategies and visions in mid-sized cities in a local and global context

research project 2006-2009

 

Amsterdam - Bilbao - Copenhagen - Dublin - Zagreb - Zurich

 

Today’s cities are not only juggling for position in the global context, but also simultaneously attending to local economic, ecological and social needs. They vie with each other to attract investment by global players in the fields of the economy and science – hoping of course to gain jobs and greater opportunities for education.

Urban Reports focuses on the way in which mid-sized cities in particular are being affected by these global trends, and it inquires into the consequences, challenges and chances resulting for local urban development. How are these cities dealing with the frictions and potentials arising from local interests and global powers? What aims and scenarios are being depicted for urban space? What types of measures, strategies and partnerships are being chosen to achieve these goals?
