Friends of the event:
Bringing Back the Social into the Cities
A holistic approach to urban transformations as a basis for the socially-informed evolution and reconfiguration of cities.
Madrid Urban Stewardship
The city of the future will be mainly made (again) by its inhabitants, and not only by companies, experts or governments
Skopje. Beyond The Obvious
We believe that structural interventions in the city fabric can help overcome inequalities and form a base for social sustainability - especially in diverse societies.
New Models of City Life
Cities are a mirror of our aspirations. Is the neo-liberal city based on knowledge for the sake of economy the only way?
Architecture of Commons
Future architecture should look for ways of living (al)together, as all power structures and capitalist formations push us more and more away from each other.
From Infrastructure to urban Interiors
Turning water infrastructure into floodable and inhabitable spaces to reveal the city’s underlying narratives
Architecture After the Future
The real question is how architecture as a discipline can adapt to the global crisis of the future.
The Future of Architecture
It will tell stories, it will be dense, not everything will be aligned, will be painted, will be as it always was.
We as architects do not think that one must build big to create large value.
Close-up, melt with the inhabitants and co-create a local self-paradigm of architecture. Co-build it and give them the tools to re-shape it for a continuous updating in the face of successive needs.
Promoting committed, trans-disciplinary creation through local-scale and participatory actions.
ZIP City: Houseless Not Homeless
An urban programme exploring a new way of living in cities without a house and redefining the concepts of ownership, sharing and home.
Architecture for Refugees
Open source online platform to collect and share knowledge on “refugee architecture”.
How to engage architecture, infrastructure and nature into a new form of collectivism?
Creating possibilities of post-functional architecture through mainstream reuse of ruins and decaying structures.
De-mercantilized, political and strategic projects for the public and society at large.
Landscapes for the Anthropocene
We, humans, have become a geologic force of change, but we struggle to grasp the consequences of that. These projects investigate potential dialogues mediating networks of humans and non-humans.
Architectural practice must leave the future behind and instead seize the present.
The project is an investigation of the possibility of synthetic biology, in a speculative design scenario estimated to be possible within 20 years. A Reality where we can program and modify organisms into objects, where your possessions grow at home instead of being manufactured in a factory.
Future architecture should understand its inherent violence and and appropriate it in resistive political formations.
Using financial conditions of debt as a design tool we can create high-quality and inexpensive homes.
Curating Heritage in Future
This installation reproduces objects, enabling visitors to experience them.
