Re-city, the ‘total makeover’ of the European City
The European urban condition stands out from those of the rest of the world. Currently, the European population is shrinking and ageing faster than any other world-region, but this does not prevent the growing push for the city. Europe currently leads the rest of the world in reaching the 75-90-3 split. Thus, the next collective core responsibility and challenge for city makers must lie explicitly in the existing city. In re-city rather then new-city. Re-City is about the transformation, renovation and re-invention of our cities. It can only be achieved through an all-in-one scheme of any scale, any alliance, any approach and any ‘rules and regulations’ rather than the rigid enforcement of densification or the pushing-through of big projects.
