Workshop by urbanaarchitettura

By | News, Workshops

KAF 2020 online workshop by urbanaarchitettura  3 – 13 October There is a chandelier in every room We live in an age of ruins. The ruins of the welfare state in its various ideological and geopolitical embodiments in the form of those institutions that have been carefully choreographed to shape modern territories of top-down, domesticated, collectivised life. From education to hospitality, confinement to mental treatment, their architectures have often been relocated, sent to exile, vacated, forgotten, repudiated, or simply left to their own destiny in a state of controlled decay. Yet they might still be a resource for reinventing modes of…

reframing the public realm workshop

By | News, Workshops

EN/ “The public realm encompasses more than the streets and sidewalks of the city. It entails the complete social and public experience of moving through a city, from the inside of a cafe to the pathways of a park or waterfront, and the shifting vantage points that knit streets, sidewalks, shops, facades, and buildings into the whole urban experience.” “From the pedestrian’s perspective, the scale at which we can best judge the success of urban design, fine grained elements of buildings, streets, sidewalks, plantings, seating, lighting and other details help create an intimate human experience and contribute to the character…

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. This workshop addresses the study of urban sprawl and the possibility for its improvement with fresh eyes, retracting from the…

DPR-Barcelona workshop at kaf18

Publishing architecture has stopped to be the terrain of canonical experts, which hardly react to the current state of the art and the myriad nuances of architectural practices nowadays. The Workshop ‘A Thousand of Fragile Archives’ will reflect on the kind of the information we share, and the…
