reframing the public realm workshop

By | News, Workshops

Intersectional public space

By | News, Workshops

EN/ 1-5 July 2019 Prishtina offers a wide range of public space: The pedestrian friendly area in the city center bordered with shops and cafés; the neighborhoods of the Yugoslavian era with their landscaped surrounding including sport facilities and playgrounds. However, the newer settlements at the edge of town offer a different image. The open spaces of this  “Parallel City” are often subordinated to motorized traffic, oblivious to site specificities or inhabitants needs and relying on mono-functionality. The build environment defines who we are and we, as architects, carry a responsibility in promoting social equity. We will investigate through an…

Parallel Sprawl workshop at KAF18

By | News, Workshops

EN/ Parallel Sprawl / Learning from Pristina Most of the urban discussions that are taking place in Pristina today are around the large scale projects going on in the Lakrïshte district or the construction of a Great Mosque. While both developments are symbolically important, the former placing Kosovo in the map of global capital and later in the cosmology of global Islam, the real needs of Pristina citizens rely most probably in the improvement of the living conditions of its conspicuous suburbs.

The Workshop ‘A Thousand of Fragile Archives’ will reflect on the kind of the information we share, and the…

EN/ Traces: Increasing Accessibility in Perceiving Architecture Workshop by Babau Bureau+EB Massimo Triches, Elisa Brusegan 2-6 July   The workshop will investigate how architecture is communicated and perceived. Designers usually make use of drawings like plans, sections, facades, etc. These materials are an universal language, but they are technical and not always totally accessible to people. This generates communication difficulties between architects and people. Over time, tracing signs on the ground is the basis of the modification of landscape. In many culture this act has become also the beginning of many games (“campanon”, tennis, soccer, bowling, etc.). This activity defines…
