Nicholas Anastasopoulos, Natalia Avlona, Ex Airports as Metropolitan Commons

  1. 1. MET Workshop Ex-airports as metropolitan commons 1st IASC Thematic Conference on the URBAN COMMONS Bologna, November 6, 2015 Nicholas Anastasopoulos, PhD, Researcher National Technical University of Athens, Greece nanastasopoulos@arch.ntua.gr
  2. 2. portAir- Α location on a coast or shore where ships can dock and transfer people or cargo to or from land. In computing a port serves as an endpoint in an operating system for many types of communication. It is not a hardware device, but a logical construct that identifies a service or process. (as described for both this terms in Wikipedia)
  3. 3. All airports share some common infrastructures: runways, control towers, hangars, etc. It is a kind of common language developed over time to serve the normal functions of an airport. The former airports are equipped with this legacy and challenge which is perceived as an invitation to examine the types of social infrastructure, and the technical, legal and operational standards an a platform for something new. This workshop presents the ex-airports as ports of ideas, social innovation centers and production centers of visions for the futures of the city, as this could perhaps be conceived by the citizens themselves.
  4. 4. Mariscal Sucre, QuitoElliniko, AthensTempelhof, Berlin The three cases (Mariscal Sucre / Quito, Elliniko / Athens and Tempelhof / Berlin) have common features and a particular interest in relation to the future of cities: In the center of the urban fabric of today due to urban sprawl and a transient and uncertain period, which have been experiencing regressions between scenarios of privatization or public space.
