Urban design may not only produce solutions to problems; it may, also, work as a method to explore the gap between what is and what could be. This is urban design as an operative practice that critically analyses situations through an understanding of their complex interrelated variables. It articulates matters of concern and opportunities, about, e.g., power and inequalities, access, climate change, threats, technologies. The research focuses on how design imaginaries can analyse, articulate and enact social, political, cultural conditions and desired futures; how imaginaries can be a method to produce knowledge about and express ‘matters of concern’.
