How well are we learning to live within our means, within the means of the earth?


Fairground suggests a strategic, collective redeployment of art, design and humanities tuition fees in collaboration with the Transition Network to form a global urban campus, bridging education, design practice and community action.

The role of the architect expands to support the activation and occupation of the existing urban environment.
