Inclusion in architecture and urban development means far more than kitting out buildings and public space with technical components. It is essential to understand and implement inclusion also as a social concept—through hubs within the urban space, locations that can withstand misconduct, open spaces and regulations as well as morale.
Inklusionsmaschine STADTaddresses the subject of inclusion widely, openly, and unsparingly. The texts by authors from different disciplines show the wide range of interests. Their dialogs make it clear that inclusion is an enriching process if one discusses the right questions together: is a city an inclusion machine? What components is it composed of? And: who builds it?
