The Laboratory for Planing in a Global Context (GLORA) conceives itself as an interdisciplinary lab that investigates phenomena of urbanisation in Asia, Africa and Latin-America. As such it aims to analyse spatial phenomena in the context of globalisation, and to develop new planning approaches on the basis of a comprehensive understanding of world-wide tendencies. This happens through the reflection of the conditions, forms and patterns of new urban spaces.
Hence, the central focus of the GLORAbor lies on the one hand in the exploration of general, historic, cultural, economic, ecological and technological aspects and factors. On the other hand, the topic is comprised of individual research on local cases (micro-space-research). The programme is supplemented by frequent guest lectures, exhibitions, field trips and public discussions. Not at least different contacts to international institutions exist. Among those are: Curitiba (Brasil), Hyderabad(India), Jakarta (Indonesia), Mumbai (India), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Santiago de Chile (Chile).
