FILL THE ROOMS, BUILD CATHEDRALS ! WORKSHOP kaf 2021

By | News, Workshops

EN/ Fill the rooms, build cathedrals! Narrative as a space of recognition. “The room fills and fills with knowledge, anguish, many kinds of ambition, much indifference, some despair. Between us, you say, we could build cathedrals, dictate policies, condemn men to death, and administer the affairs of several public offices.” Virginia Woolf. According to William Kentridge, the function of art is to create spaces of recognition, a common ground for all in which we can encounter and empathise with each other. This is what we should aim for when we talk and write about architecture, for it is important to acknowledge…

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…
