This seminar investigates how working patterns of cities have changed and what this means for urban systems in terms of infrastructure, urban design and planning. Key questions to be examined include:
- Where is formal/informal/precarious work undertaken, particularly in times of austerity; in what urban sites and places, and what spaces do these create?
- Are new hybrid places emerging in cities? How regulated/formalized are these?
- How do we have to rethink ‘the journey to work’, formal vs. informal work(spaces), private vs. public spaces and corporate vs. social spaces in cities and what are useful concepts?
