Welcome to paradoXcity

paradoXcity is a design-research platform exploring the contemporary urban condition between stasis and change, in order to move forward towards a state of stability.

The transformation of urban landscapes in the ongoing process of modernization is subject of comparative research. A more recent concept of design seeks to identify paradox conditions in order to navigate their implications. This holistic design approach consciously addresses the next iteration in the ongoing project of modernity.
