Masha Hupalo defends her PhD thesis, Strategic Stillness: Urban Configurations Achieved Through Parking on 4 December at 4 PM (CET).
The dissertation examines parking phenomenon that is indicative of broader strategies in urban transformations. Throughout the analysis, parking remains a physical counterpart of more immaterial negotiations between business owners and residents, car manufacturers and city planners, drivers and city planners, traffic engineers and architects.
Four primary case studies in Copenhagen and Los Angeles are centered around a widely recognized parking typology; its related legislation, the connection to other programs like commerce, housing, offices, leisure, and its role in the city-wide mobility system.
Access to the room is restricted due to COVID19. Please send an email to PhD Coordinator Mia Mimi Flodager, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you wish to be physically present. Otherwise, you may watch the PhD defence online via Zoom.
