The workshop will look at how cities work and don’t work for different groups of people and how that can be addressed.
Through a discussion around histories of feminist living spaces, alternative models of city planning and sci-fi worlds, the group will form their own tactile responses to how a future city can look.
The city plan will be printed into clay using a variety of materials to print, scratch, build and remove the surface before a cast is taken from it with household plaster. Once set, it will become a physical map for this future place.
