Exhibition launch PLACE, Belfast, Thurs Nov 5 2009, 6pm - 9pm

The research project pursued the question how polarisation becomes materially imprinted in a city and how material aspects of a city might actually influence (accentuate or alleviate) polarisation processes. It compares the situation in four cities and speculates about ways in which architecture and urban design might contribute to reconciliation processes by tackling some of the spatial and material conditions of stereotypisation, mutual fear, lack of spaces for friendly encounters etc.
