Urbanlab - Urban Upcycling meetup

Urbanlab’s first event, Urban Upcycling Meetup, will take place on 12 May.

One of the buzzwords of the event is reinvention, making cities more liveable from an environmental, economic and urbanistic point of view. The focus is on the phenomenon of vacant buildings, chiefly from an upcycling perspective. Participants will include Budapest’s chief architect Zoltán Erő, Deputy State Secretary for the Development of Budapest Dr. Domonkos Schneller, and head of the design team of DMV Group Ida Kiss. 

What is urban upcycling? How can you increase the value of a seemingly worthless location? How can reinvention promote a greener focus for cities? How can these renovations become profitable? How can the transformed buildings become scenes revitalising local community life? These and other questions will be addressed at the meetup. 

Date and time: 12 May, at 10:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Venue: MOME BASE - Glass Room

What do we need to make things work? A lot has changed over the past few decades. Some things have improved considerably, while some, we feel, have gone off the rails. What is the best strategy to deal with the latter: should suffer, fix, replace or recreate them? What changes have the concept of resilience undergone since it was coined 50 years ago?
