‘De vloeibare stad’ (The Liquid City) by Floor Milikowski

18 May 2017

On Thursday 18 May, upon invitation from Stad.Academie – the academy for city makers – Floor Milikowski presents her lecture, The Liquid City. The title, referring to sociologist and philosopher Zygmunt Bauman’s concept of ‘liquid modernity’, assumes that the liquid city is conceived of as a continuous development and as a permanent urbanisation.

Milikowski sees the opportunities of decline: ‘They are real, but they require a clear vision, a shared ambition, and the desire to shake hands.’
