From the event flyer:

To agglomerate is to respect what is already there. Gone the times it made sense to build cities from scratch. The urban development offers the opportunity to work with existing bits and pieces and to turn this former edge of town into an ʻurban ecotoneʼ, a zone of encounter where people and other beings discover and eventually co-inhabit buildings, open spaces, urban systems, and atmospheres. Architecture plays a key role in agglomerating the urban puzzle around, locally and globally, as a space and as a social catalyst. To work with the existent requires site-specific design: to take stock of the resources in place (site reading), to decide where to intervene and with whom (site editing), to enact new uses (site activating) and to shape the details in space and in dynamic social contexts (site detailing).
