Temporalities of Nostalgia: Heritage(s) in Urban Everyday Life & Design

The focus was on the 'effective temporal heritage(s)' as indispensable tools in urban place design and as a catalyst for new and alternative forms of temporal place-making processes. The presentation showed an alternative definition of urban place heritage(s) from everyday life. It did so by focusing on how 'cultural identities of place' are shaped by rhythmic assemblies of festivals, events, social and community practices and memory. Focus was on how unique 'temporal cultural identities of places' can reflect traces of effective urban pasts, either collective (of nostalgia) or representing political and cultural conflicts along with how 'temporalities and rhythms of nostalgia' may be designed with unique forms of urban place-design and place-making processes.
