Crimson Historians & Urbanists warmly invites you to the book launch of ‘A City of Comings and Goings’ on July 11th 2019 at the Independent School for the City in Rotterdam. During this launch we will also celebrate the return of the exhibition ’A City of Comings and Goings’ to Rotterdam that was on show earlier at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.

Our cities are increasingly defined by the dynamics of temporary inhabitants: expats, refugees, international students and migrant workers are moving in and out. How can cities better adapt to this phenomenon, that has always shaped and defined urban development but will even more do so in the future?
A City of Comings and Goings is an international research and development project supported by EFL Foundation and BPD developers.

During the post war period, modernist urban planning was seen by both capitalist as communist countries as an instrument of Cold War politics, embodying values and ideology. Cities in the new nation states in Africa, Asia and Latin America were planned and/or designed with support of the USSR or the USA, to win over populations. By unraveling case studies from all parts of the world, the ambiguous and fascinating story of new cities and their mile high social and political ambitions unfolds.
New Towns on the Cold War Frontier is an ongoing research and book project by Crimson & INTI.

Is Rotterdam echt de bruisende hotspot voor architectuur waar internationaal alle ogen op gericht zijn? En wat betekent dat voor de toekomst?
