Wasteland Twinning hijacks the concept of ‘City Twinning’ and applies it to urban Wastelands in order to generate a network for parallel research and action.
By subverting a concept which aims to parade a city’s more predictable and mainstream cultural assets and shifting the focus to Wastelands, questions of value and function are raised. From these questions, new practices are developed.
Wasteland Twinning develops an understanding of the potential of these sites through cross-disciplinary models of practice.
Wasteland Twinning is an expanding network and so far has project partners in Amsterdam, Bangalore, Berlin, Glasgow, Guwahti, Kuala Lumpur, London, Nottingham, Sydney, Yogyakarta…and Stockholm?
