Europan 14 | Productive Cities

Productivity is not limited to financial-oriented outcomes. Productivity determines social and economic interactions through adaptative processes: it is an open system. An open system framework aims at guaranteeing a constant interaction between a diverse and uncommon mix of activities. Physical space is the catalyst for community revival in a productive and proactive sense. The open-ended processes originating from space are the means to activate social, cultural and economic production.
