The sharing economy and collaborative consumption are attracting a great deal of interest due to their business, legal and civic implications. The consequences of the spreading of practices of sharing in urban environments and under daily dynamics are underexplored. This Special Issue aims to address if and how sharing shapes cities, the way that spaces are designed and lived in if social interactions are escalated, and the ways that habits and routines take place in post-individualistic society. In particular, the following key questions are of primary interest: Urban fabric: How is ‘sharing’ shaping cities? Does it represent a paradigm shift with tangible and physical reverberations on urban form? How are shared mobility, work, inhabiting reconfiguring the urban and social fabric? Social practices: Are new lifestyles and practices related to sharing changing the use and design of spaces? To what extent is sharing triggering a production and consumption paradigm shift to be reflected in urban arrangements and infrastructures? Sustainability: Does sharing increase the intensity of use of space and assets, or, rather, does it increase them to meet the expectations of convenience for urban lifestyles? To what extent are these phenomena fostering more economically-, socially-, and environmentally-sustainable practices and cities? Policy: How can policy makers and municipalities interact with these bottom-up and phenomena and grassroots innovation to create more sustainable cities? Scholars responded to the above questions from the fields of urban studies, urban planning and design, sociology, geography, theoretically-grounded and informed by the results of fieldwork activities.
“Sharing city” is a prevalent worldwide term now in the context of the emerging sharing economy.
Author: Kun Lyu
“Sharing city” is a prevalent worldwide term now in the context of the emerging sharing economy. This thesis will refine the term of “sharing economy” first and keep investigating the possible current and potential future social effects and spatial implications of sharing activities in urban space. The goal of this paper is to anticipate the major shift of urban space’ usages in the process of increasingly sharing economy growth. Landscape architects can positively help the transformation of urban space to provide higher flexible spaces so that people can image possibilities. This thesis will focus on three major questions. The first section will address the question of how sharing activities will impact urban physical fabrics. In the first part, the paper will focus on investigating a wide range of sharing activities’ current and future possible spatial implications. The second question of this thesis is that how sharing activities reshape the city of social life. The key to the second question is to find the social effects of various sharing activities. The first two questions are intertwined. Literature review and design case studies will be conducted to address them. Finally, diving into landscape architect’s perspectives, the following question is eventually to be addressed “how landscape designer should design urban spaces coordinating with sharing economy?” This thesis will take Seattle’s University District as a case study for exploration, as Seattle is entering the era of “sharing city”-potentially a catalyst for more environmentally sustainable and culturally innovative urban space. The final result of this thesis will be several scenarios of design proposals that show the possible transformation of urban space by applying conclusions from the former two sections of the thesis.

The Shared Cities Atlas applies the new, global 'sharing paradigm' in architecture and public sphere to a site-specific situation in seven cities in Central Europe. Mapping current practices of sharing and new fields of action in case studies, it contextualizes the phenomenon in research papers, data, and photography. The ideas of a 'right to the city', of common resources, or 'the urban commons' all of which are in vogue in contemporary architectural discourse illustrate the paradigm shift towards a sharing perspective. In 'sharing cities' the emphasis lies in the right to remake the cities as a form of urban social contract with a specific creative or critical agenda. The Atlas presents creative forms of sharing driven by idealistic positions and collective actions - new approaches to sharing of spaces and architecture, experience and knowledge, data, or collective histories.

City Politics is a comprehensive text organized around the theme of political economy. Using a historical approach to reveal enduring patterns in urban politics, the text goes beyond an explanation of government structures and examines the complex interaction between public and private interests. Dennis R. Judd and Todd Swanstrom have completely updated and reorganized City Politics. The second edition continues to approach urban politics comparatively and includes a new chapter on urban governance that examines the prospects for urban liberalism, conservatism, and populism; new material on tourism as an economic development strategy; the politics of community development; and President Clinton's urban policy.
