Housing and Welfare - Conference
The recent growth of many cities calls for a rethinking of urban and suburban development: How are urban and suburban areas transformed to give room for new citizens and functions? How does housing and urban space shape communities and everyday life? How can current challenges like segregation, climate changes and ageing societies be dealt with when rethinking urban and suburban development?
The conference focusses on boundaries, encounters and connections – between urban and suburban neighbourhoods, between new and old, between different social groups, between public and private, and between different disciplinary approaches to housing, suburbs and cities.
We invite scholars and practitioners within housing and urban design to discuss and reflect on the presence and future of urban and suburban development through keynotes, panels, dialogue sessions and workshops.
The conference will take place:
on 7-8 May 2015 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation in Copenhagen.
You have to register at this site no later than March 31st 2015.
The School of Architecture will at the same time be hosting the exhibition Housing and Welfare – Homes|Ensembles|City presenting Copenhagen tomorrow – seen through pending projects from leading Danish and international architect practices and research institutions.
The conference will include 4 dialogue-sessions, where practitioners in dialogue with researchers will present and discuss architectural responses to societal transformations through specific projects.
