Brussels2030 Summer Assembly 2023
Walk + Lab, Thursday 29-06
10.00 – 17.00
A shared/disputed cartography of Brussels’ hypercentre
🚩 walk (departure at Beurs/Bourse) – lab: De Markten (to be confirmed)
Hosts: BRAL & ARAU
During a walk and an atelier in the city centre, in and around the piétonnier, we will analyse and discuss a map that several students and experts created of the hypercentre. We want to reflect on the evolution and the future of commerce and cultural institutions in this zone. The privatization of space, the ‘hambergerisation’ phenomenon and cultural spaces in the city centre are among the themes that will guide us. The result will be shared/disputed cartography which will serve as a base for further discussions with politicians and local stakeholders.
🚩 FARI AI for the Common Good Institute
Hosts: Architecture Workroom Brussels & LoUIsE
We will start with a Data walk, a Brussels city tour where the participants can discover data capture methods surrounding us, as well as their known usage and impact. Afterward, a visit to the FARI Test & Experience Center will be organized, where participants can discover algorithms and AI projects being developed in universities. The afternoon session will consist of a practical co-creation workshop. We start with the magical sentence “AND IF?” Our question will be “what if public data could be used freely by everybody, what would we create out of it? What projects can citizens produce for the common good?
