Regarding five main topics, dealing with the possibilities of planning, ways of managing cities, the temporal intentions of the city administration, the context of site and scale of interventions, we are looking for the reasons, why it is important to innovate the management and organizations of cities. A simultaneous balance between control and laissez faire - between planning and spontaneous (uncontrolled) development - is demonstrated on examples from different cities (Curitiba, Copenhagen, Paris, Bilbao, Barcelona, Tehran, Zurich, Lagos, São Paulo).The exhibition is part of a long term project, with the aim to broaden the interdisciplinary discussion about a flexible planning of cities. The exhibition is following up the prepared book Thinking the City: Between control and Laissez-faire.
