>Architects for Peace is a forum for planners, architects, urban
>designers, environmentalists, academics and students, seeking urban
>development based on social justice, solidarity, respect and peace.
>intentCITY will be a public forum to discuss the "political city" -
>the public space that affects us all - the built environment,
>ecology, citizens, particularly our involvement in war and what can
>be done to prevent it.
>intentCITY is about cities, citizenship, collaboration and
>friendship, at local and international levels. It is about
>boundaries, social and spatial, about cities their social realities
>and its denials. The public space that encourages discussion, the
>space of the "subversive forces" as Roland Barthes (1988) called it.
>Central to the idea of this forum is that it should take place in
>the public space - intentCITY will be a free open forum accessible
>to AFP members and the general public.
