Amateur Cities is an online publishing and research platform on alternative ways of city making presented critically. It aims to connect city thinkers to city makers.
Amateur Cities publishes articles that collect, analyze and clarify contemporary urban and technological development interesting for learning cities anew - not as masters, but as amateurs. It provides a platform for a dialogue on urban collective intelligence by presenting side-by-side theoretical and practical voices. It stimulates cross-sector exchange by engaging experts from architecture, urbanism, art, science, information technology, media, sociology and philosophy.
The platform has been set up and developed by Cristina Ampatzidou and Ania Molenda with a generous support from Creative Industries Fund NL.
