COVID-19 Urban Speculation and Scenario Planning

Speculative urbanization is “the construction of new urban infrastructure or settlement for primarily political or economic purposes, rather than to meet real (as opposed to artificially projected) demographic or market demand.”
Christopher Marcinkoski, The City That Never Was (2016).

This lab workshop explores the construction of possible future scenarios by analyzing current conditions, trends and speculative possibilities through a fixed methodology that ensures multiple outcomes.
