DE / PROGRAM. Walk with Jean-Maxime Dufresne and Jean-François Prost (Adaptive Actions & l'atelier SYN-).

This urban walking tour was initiated by SYN- at the Adaptive Actions camp held at Concordia University in the fall of 2010. Its framework is the concept of de-programming, an idea initially related, in its most negative form, to the progressive breakdown and recent “cannibalization” of the area that includes Concordia University. In contrast to the usual interpretation of the architectural program, might this concept instead be explored through singular actions that describe difference and foster diversity? The following might prove to be active ingredients in stimulating this reflection: a lack of stability and a highly transient student population, critical population density, and culturally induced adaptations of the high-rise. The walk will explore some realities relating to space and minority communities, issues likely to converge with dominant influences and collective visions that are charting the sector's future.

Participants can contribute an image or a brief text representing unusual places and situations observed in the area around Concordia University. Material can be sent to the following address:
