Cahier #2 Design Probes for the Hackable City in Amsterdam Buiksloterham

Cahier #2 describes a series of design probes that explored cooperative area development in the Amsterdam brownfield redevelopment site of Buiksloterham. These probes were tailored to investigate specific aspects of ‘hackable citymaking’: collaborative practices between different stakeholders, where new media technologies are employed to open up urban institutions and infrastructures to systemic change, in the public interest.

Cahier #3 The Hackable City International: Lessons from Athens, São Paulo and Shenzhen

Cahier #3 explores a series of concrete hackable citymaking practices in Athens, São Paulo and Shenzhen. Despite being situated on different continents and having distinct traditions and political systems, we found a number of dynamics around civic initiatives in these cities that further informed our Hackable city model.

The Hackable City: A Research Manifesto and Design Toolkit

This manifesto served as the starting point of our research project. Using ‘hacking’ as a lens to explore practices of collaborative citymaking, the book offers the hackable city as a collaborative, citizen centered alternative urban imaginary in lieu of dominant top-down smart city paradigms.

Hackable City Plot Exhibit @ International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2016

In 2016, DELVA Landscape Architects, One Architecture,Stadslab Buiksloterham Circulair, STUDIONINEDOTS and The Hackable City jointly presented their projects about Buiksloterham during IABR2016-TheNextEconomy. The installation ‘Hackable Cityplot’ zoomed in on a number of concrete proposals resulting from the clash between the chaotic world of the bottom-up – and traditional top-down urban planning, where cooperative co-design processes run in parallel with traditional urban development.
