Collaborations between artists and urban designers as part of a design team are generally seen as ‘a good thing’. But what is the real added value of these partnerships and how do they work in practice?
The keynote presentation considered what artists and designers can do to prevent globalisation and whether there have to be some tangible ‘outcomes’ to an artist’s work. The presentation was made shortly after Cotterrells return from his second research period in Afghanistan and attempted to reconcile the contradictions and parallels witnessed within planning in transitional and uncertain environments.
