Castellano

Urbanismo Capital “Funding the Cooperative City” se centra en la transición posterior al bienestar de las sociedades europeas de hoy: con las medidas de austeridad y la financiarización de las acciones de bienes raíces y servicios urbanos, el retiro gradual del estado y las administraciones municipales al proporcionar ciertos servicios y mantener ciertos espacios han impulsado iniciativas ciudadanas y grupos profesionales para organizar sus propios servicios y lugares. La auto-organización de nuevos espacios de trabajo, cultura y bienestar social han sido posible por diversas circunstancias socio-económicas: desempleo, redes de solidaridad, cambio de precios de bienes raíces y patrones de propiedad han creado oportunidades para salir de las dinámicas habituales del desarrollo inmobiliario.

En algunos casos, estructuras de la propiedad cooperativa excluyen la posibilidad de especulación inmobiliaria, en otros, nuevos servicios de bienestar están integrados en el tejido económico local, confiando en las capacidades y recursos no utilizados. Los nuevos procesos de desarrollo de las cooperativas también han sido testigos de la aparición de nuevos tipos de inversores, operando en base a principios de ética, confianza o de sostenibilidad, o trabajando en el intercambio de propiedades del mercado.

En el contexto económico actual de la ciudad de Madrid en el que estas iniciativas se revelan y a los desafíos sociales a los que dan respuesta, así como por análisis de la propiedad, gestión, modelos económicos y los impactos urbanos de los proyectos presentados -los talleres y la publicación- se destacan nuevas tendencias de desarrollo urbano y actores emergentes en las sociedades europeas contemporáneas. El objetivo del proyecto es resaltar las potencialidades de las nuevas lógicas económicas, basadas en las comunidades de desarrollo urbano y coproducción de ciudad, y para inspirar a nuevos compromisos y marcos permitiendo experimentos similares a revelar. La influencia del proyecto se revela en varios niveles: mientras que ayuda a las iniciativas “sobre el terreno”, también se involucra a la administración, a la empresa y a los inversores para coinvertir.

El taller de Madrid Urbanismo Capital forma parte de los talleres celebrados en el 2014 en las ciudades de Rotterdam, Berlín y París. Y los 3 talleres europeos “Funding the Cooperative City” que se celebran en el 2016 en Budapest (6-8Abril) y en Roma (4-6 Mayo) y se presentarán en la Bienal de Arquitectura de Rotterdam (26-28 Mayo) The Next Economy.

“Funding the Cooperative City” explores, promotes and assists experiments in organizing welfare and establishing new social and community services in European cities. After a series of workshops organized in 2014 Fall with the Wonderland Platform for European Architecture in Rotterdam, Berlin and Paris in cooperation with Pamphlet Architecture, New Generations and Banlieues d’Europe, the project moves to Southern and Eastern Europe in the 2015 Fall and 2016 Spring. In these regions, we will complete the creation of an Europe-wide network of experimental initiatives that introduce new ways to finance and organize social services and infrastructures. Through local research, events in Madrid, Rome and Budapest, as well as investigative reports, video portraits and a publication, the project will bring together protagonists of the new social economy from various cities in order to help shaping a new European culture of urban development based on community-driven initiatives, civic economic models and cooperative ownership.

“Funding the Cooperative City” will present cases of cooperative urban development projects from Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Rome, Belgrade, Budapest and other European cities. Besides the cases, the exhibition will also analyse the processes in which they were created, their management models, financing structures, stakeholders and relationships with major actors in their cities. Based on a series of workshops organized in Rotterdam, Berlin and Paris in Fall 2014 and in Madrid, Rome and Budapest in Fall 2015, and on interviews conducted with protagonists of cooperative urban development projects, the proposed materials will introduce new development concepts, models and methodologies of the Sharing City through experiences of projects like ExRotaprint, Holzmarkt, 6B, Homebaked, Stealth:unlimited, Zoho, Heti betevő, and many others.

The project’s goal is to highlight the potentials and limitations of new, community-based logics of urban development, and to inspire new commitments and frameworks enabling similar experiments to unfold. We work on making the project influential at various levels: while helping initiatives at the local level, we also aim at engaging politicians, municipal officers and financial decision-makers to help these new processes.

Madrid workshop  Urbanismo Capital is part of the workshops: 2014 inthe city of  Rotterdam, Berlín y París. And the 3 european workshops “Funding the Cooperative City” will celebrate 2016 in  Budapest (6-8April) y en Rome (4-6 May) and will be presented at the Rotterdam Architecture Bienale  (26-28 May) The Next Economy.

Wikitoki is a laboratory of collaborative practices located in a 370 sq mt space in Bilbao. Wikitoki hosts multiple activities with a  focus   on    social, economic, urban, feminist, cultural and political implications that are developed through a mixture of disciplines following co-creation and active participation principles. The membership fees vary according to the different type of usage and this income is integrated with a series of activities with different economic margins that feed into a mutualistic model. Also a new system of partnership has been introduced based on the idea of residencies, to provide dynamism, open to more people and incorporate other interests and abilities.

De Besturing

The Hague (NL)

The creative hub De Besturing has started during the re-development of an industrial area in the Hague. When this process stopped, the DB community started to push their presence further in the area, taking over the vacant spaces and having as a long term vision to build a place for innovative thinking in arts, design and technology. Within DB, independent entrepreneurs develop projects under the umbrella of a cooperative and profits of the cooperation are redistributed to kick-start new initiatives. DB operates as an opinionated community by having a role in the public debate around culture and innovation in their city. De Participation of De Besturing is supported by the Dutch Embassy in Spain.

La fabrika detodalavida

Los Santos de Mainona(ES)

LaFábrika detodalavida is located in Los Santos de Maimona, a rural town in Extremadura. Using an old cement factory as its basis, La Fábrika detodalavida is a free, open and participatory project where anyone, any need and any idea are welcome. Initially, a crowdfunding campaign helped to collect the microfinance support which was complemented by the founders’ financial resources. Currently the project is supported by the profit of events and a system of alternative sharing system, including time banking.

Gängeviertel

Hamburgo (DE)

The project takes place in twelve historic buildings in Hamburg’s city centre which have been transformed into a cultural, political and social non-commercial hub for the collectivity. Starting as occupied buildings, the project has been turned into a legal process to re-activate the neighbourhood. The Gängeviertel established cooperative shares that may be purchased not only by the people who seek to use the space but also by the general public. Besides the community shares and voluntary work, the complex creates significant revenue from nightlife activities.
