Publisher Note

The publication “Situations sensible / Sensitive Situations” gathers materials from a research project of several parts by Robert Ireland and Nicolas Vermot-Petit-Outhenin with students of the Master of Arts in Public Spheres program at EDHEA in Sierre.
The starting point are researches in the public spheres of the five B-cities Belfast, Bordeaux, Biel/Bienne, Bonn and Brindisi as well as interventions in the urban space of Lausanne.
The results of this research were brought together in an exhibition at F’ar – Forum d’architectures, Lausanne. For the publication, the various contributions have been further developed individually and inserted between the full-page photographs from the exhibition. The resulting compilation of different formats and materials was reproduced in an overlapping manner, so that the differently sized contents provide a glimpse of forthcoming and preceding contributions or of the exhibition views, suggesting a volume of partial publications of different formats.
