Shaping Human Cities

05 May - 24 Jun 2018

Urban experiments from eleven European cities conceptualized and realized by designers, initiatives, activists, students and residents are open for discussion. In an interactive exhibition the possibilities and challenges of getting involved are to be discovered. Why do we feel comfortable or uncomfortable in a city? What makes it livable? Do we have the freedom to shape our city? What makes a city our city?

The exhibition SHAPING HUMAN CITIES was designed by students of the Master’s programme Exhibition Design at the University of Applied Sciences, FH JOANNEUM and from 5 May to 24 June 2018 urban experiments are presented, which took place within the framework of the Human Cities Project in these cities. Interactive stations are installed in the GrazMuseum where the experiments can be experienced in a playful way.

One of them is LET´S TAKE ACTION.
It gives tips on how to become active in your own urban environment and thereby improve the urban space.

Consists of eleven miniature golf courses that invite you to play. Each lane is assigned to one Human City and one of their experiments. The courses incorporate the spatial and creative circumstances of the experiments and pose a challenge for the players.

Invites up to 20 guests on four Sundays to taste the Human Cities projects in eleven courses.

Introduces the 11 cities of the Human Cities network.

In addition, an app with an interactive, digital catalogue is available for download. Here, photos, videos, comments, etc. can be uploaded and commented upon.
