Critical Futures: OBSOLESCENCE and RENOVATION
International, interdisciplinary conference taking place in Seville from December 14th to 15th, part of the “Housing: Critical Futures” Program, will have Herman Hertzberger as a keynote speaker.
“The OBSOLESCENCE and RENOVATION conference raises questions that affect both private and public housing stock; the south and the global north; and both pre and post World War II housing across the world. On that basis, the issues we raise are relevant to architects, planners, interior designers, sociologists, and policy makers across Europe and beyond. Specific areas of interest include Best Design Practices that explore design interventions that adapt old buildings to contemporary housing demands; Best Urban Practices that analyse urban design strategies for making existing neighbourhoods more inclusive, safer and connected; Best Environmental Practices that explore improvements to the environmental performance of the older housing stock; and Best Practices on Policy, Management and Participation. How can professionals, public authorities, developers and neighbourhood community groups etc. collaborate on neighbourhood regeneration?”.
Registration closes on December 5th.
