Direct Urbanism


After more than 12 years of transdisciplinary practice, this book introduces the extensive work of transparadiso.

The oeuvre ranges here from a committed architectural practice down to diverse artistic-urban interventions which, now methodically sharpened as ‘direct urbanism’, lift the dichotomy between planning and urban activism.

The desire for a collective topos that is supported by collaborative actions and the potential of macro-utopias is common to all the different projects.

An interview with Paul O’Neill and Mick Wilson as well as a text by Jane Rendell link the discourse to the projects with their wildly diverse contexts.
