The focus of the workshop is a revisit of the topic »City Density«, which has for a long time been part of debates and is now regaining the interest of different disciplines. To give consideration to versatile approaches, the special aim of this 2-days program is to expand the traditional fields of urban studies by including ongoing debates within art, cultural studies and humanities.
