The theme of V!RUS 04, Designing coexistence, is based on the perception that, nowadays and further and further, the data of the problem presented to all those who are called upon to intervene in the cities, either planners, politicians, architects, designers, artists, social animators or scholars from various fields, are changing. It is no longer only about designing and producing physical spaces that eventually will constitute places of living or expulsion, in various scales, for populations that we think we know by heart. Above all, it is about understanding that the essence of society is altered through various phenomena such as migration, access to information, enhancement of local cultures, respect and encouragement for minorities, among many others, and that as the city is formed by these people, designing the city means designing conditions for their differences to coexist. And with dignity and shine!
This subject has been occupying a central place in discussions at Nomads.usp since some time ago, allowing the Center to remark new connections between its research works. V!RUS 04 is a search for interlocutors that Nomads.usp extends beyond its walls, wanting to listen to them in a debate that will hopefully continue to expand. Therefore, we have opened the floor to any external researcher who was interested in discussing with us, but we also invited some researchers and social actors to express their views on the subject. The result is in the pages that we offer here to reading and delight with its twenty-five texts, thirteen videos, three audios, two architectural projects and dozens of pictures.
This issue counts with 47 external collaborators out of Nomads.usp, considering authors of both submitted and invited texts. They are from 8 different countries Germany, Spain, England, Mozambique, Palestine, Portugal, Sweden and Brazil and transit through various knowledge areas as performing arts, cultural animation, social sciences, design, computer science, education, communication, philosophy, psychology, geography, cultural studies, visual arts, history, urban planning and architecture.
We hope that reading this rich material, produced by many hands, bring us wider visions over the subject and stimulate us to be equally propositional in terms of actions able to induce coexistence.
