OPEN CITIES and SOCIOCULTURAL HYBRID SPACES

Places of Community welfare for the 15 minutes city and surrounding areas 

Do you know what socio-cultural hybrid spaces are?

There remain some open questions, questions to which to invite experts, activists, municipal technicians, associations to continue the action research work started with workshops and seminars, public meetings and walks, to tentatively define a path of co-design of actions and suggestions for public policies. Let's open up to a local, national and international comparison to ask: what kind of socio-cultural hybrid spaces were born in your city? Where are these spaces? We will compare the Maps of Milan, Berlin, Amsterdam and other cities and national territories. We will ask ourselves: what kind of services are returned to the neighborhood for a nearby city? What kind of vision, public debate and co-design of policies for solidarity welfare (Cacciari, 2018) has been initiated with the Public Administration and local Authorities? How is the socio-cultural impact measured in your city? What kind of impact indicators?

Hybrid socio-cultural spaces are also part of open cities (Sennet, 2019). It is necessary to build more incomplete cities, with spaces that are not overdetermined in their functions, but "ambiguous", flexible, porous. As a city becomes more open it will be able to accommodate adaptations, encourage dissonant uses of public space. The task of the radical planner, but also of the public administrator and socio-cultural entrepreneurs is therefore to promote dissonance. Hybrid spaces can give home to the unexpected, the unscheduled, the mixed-use of different populations. Knowing how to recognize and activate new hybrid spaces will also make it possible to adopt new Open planning tools (Burkhardt, 1968; Inti, 2019), a "toolbox" to promote adaptable, flexible and inclusive spaces that are part of the transformation processes of parts of cities and territories..
