1. Looking for October, educational documentary film by School of Missing Studies (SMS) from 2004 is now accessible online. Film documents the research project about contemporary meanings of liberation of cities. In early 2000s democratic government of Belgrade decided not to celebrate anymore 20th October 1944 as the day of the liberation of Belgrade from fascist Germany. However, streets, schools, awards, parks and cinemas with the name 20th October remain. Participants in this SMS project explored what was left behind and created short video animations to project the absence of the holiday towards the future of the city. Film Looking for October was directed by Dušan Gligorov, director from Moscow.

    HILLTOPIA
    --
    PROPOSITION TO NATURALIZE VOIDS OF VACANT PARTS OF PHILADELPHIA
    --
    PROJECT BY SRDJAN JOVANOVIC WEISS / NAO
    --
    Hilltopia is a visionary proposition as to how to turn vast empty urban areas in North Philadelphia into urban summits, hillsides and valleys. The exhibit in Shenzhen consists of a circular table carrying three models in scales 1:1000, 1:500 and 1:100. These models will demonstrate the idea of bringing earth to empty parts of the city of Philadelphia in order to make urban hills supported by the reinforced vacated houses.
    --
    Since 2003 and the next 20 years, 250,000 acres of open space will be developed in Philadelphia’s Metropolitan Area as suburban construction. What if all the excess earth were shipped to the city’s vacant land and put to positive use? Boundaries guide a city’s evolution.
    Philadelphia’s suburbs attract residents, money, and resources away from the city. What can they give back? Maybe their earth. In a flat city, neighborhoods break hard along lines of race and class. The invisible turns divisible. Visible topography could entangle and consolidate neighborhoods along lines of a new geography. We could be connected hills and valleys.
    These hill-bounded neighborhoods will satisfy desire for recreation, public space, privacy and security. The overall square footage of available land per resident will increase by 30%. The hills will provide spaciousness and privacy. Both the physical buffer from the city and weaning off of aging infrastructure ensures security. Existing housing will be made energy efficient. The piled earth will insulate exposed party walls. Geothermal coils will run between houses and below the mounds. The planted terrain will act as leach fields for gray water treatment. Runoff
    will be captured for community gardens.
