Cohabitation Strategies: How to Begin Again: Towards a New Urban Practice

March 10, 2021 - March 10, 2021

Online event hosted by Bard College Annandale

Cohabitation Strategies (CohStra) is a non-profit cooperative for socio-spatial research, design and development based in New York City, Rotterdam and Ibiza.  CohStra was founded in the city of Rotterdam – right after the 2008 financial crash – by Lucia Babina, Emiliano Gandolfi, Gabriela Rendón and Miguel Robles-Durán.  Since then, CohStra has initiated operation centers in various cities across Europe, South and North America. Its action research endeavors to facilitate transformative and progressive urban intervention projects.  This is undertaken through the active engagement with a range of locally embedded actors from governments, municipalities, cultural institutions, non-profit organizations and civic groups to researchers, artists, designers and independent activists that coalesce around the desire for social, spatial and environmental justice – in short, the Right to the City.

This lecture is part of the Struggle/Rupture/Joy public lecture series and was co-hosted by EHCN, Bard College Environmental and Urban Studies, and Bard College Architecture.
