On the example of the Corvin Promenade Project and the rehabilitation of Magdolna Quarter in District VIII, this field trip provides a critical narrative of different approaches and practices of urban regeneration in Budapest. Whereas the first (market-generated) project is a radical intervention in the urban tissue of a formerly blighted area (merely displacing urban poverty), the latter is an attempt to move towards a more socially sensitive form of urban rehabilitation – yet, with several question marks.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIELD TRIP TAKES APPROX. 3 HOURS.
