ODA Residency – not this Olympics

What I see as urban is a heterogeneous structure that allows for grassroots development and for alternative communities to coexist.

Svetlana Boym, professor of literature and design at Harvard University

Dominic and I were not successful in our ODA residency proposal, I learned today, but reading a Der-Speigel article about the gentrification of Berlin’s alternative spaces, I realised that there is still scope to continue a creative investigation that celebrates ‘heterogeneous structures’ and the spaces within urban development that allow for the co-existence of alternative communities.  I’ll clearly have to read Professor Boym’s work.
