Les villes vont-elles redevenir des espaces de production – ou du moins sauvegarder ce qu’il
en reste ? Plusieurs décennies de division de la ville en zones distinctes ont en effet poussé l’économie productive à se déployer de manière peu dense dans les périphéries, sans y apporter de réelle plus-value. Au contraire, ce découpage du territoire urbain a inutilement multiplié les déplacements et provoqué une disparition progressive des interactions spontanées entre les différents usagers du territoire urbanisé.

AA Visiting School nanotourism 2018

This years’ programme will research and develop strategies of nanotourism in Honolulu, Hawaii, a context defined by a mix of indigenous and contemporary cultures, operating in an environment globally famous for its industry of mass tourism. On an average day, Hawaii’s 1.4 million residents host 220,000 visitors and up to 35,000 people fly in and out of its airports. In 2017 more than 9.1 million tourists were projected to visit Hawaii, with an expected rise to just over 9.5 million by 2020. The intensive two-week,  research-design-build programme will focus on Kaka‘ako, an emerging and vibrant 600-acre waterfront district in downtown Honolulu. Through hands-on collaboration with local institutions, we will develop strategies and projects, that aim at challenging the existing notion of tourism by creating hyper site-specific interventions in 1:1 scale.

nanotourism is a creative critique to the effects of mainstream tourism and operates as a site specific, participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative by stimulating mutual interaction between user and provider through co-creation and exchange of knowledge.
