We have been invited to contribute with an article in a forthcoming publication on the topic ‘Rethinking the Concept of Density’. This book explores the topic ‘City Density’, which has been part of debates for a long time and is now regaining the interest of different disciplines. The special focus of the book is to expand the traditional fields of urban studies by including ongoing debates within art, cultural studies and humanities. The publication will appear in autumn 2016 as a volume of the Publication Series of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
