Short description

IFAU 2018 - 2nd International Forum on Architecture and Urbanism aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects related to Landscapes, Cities and Architecture within FRAGILE TERRITORIES. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted for the Fragile Territories in Cities in Transition.

Description

The Forum will focus primarily on a comparison of disciplinary actions and research in the Adriatic-Ionian Euroregion (and beyond). The study will be extended to the entirety of the Balkan region, fast becoming a key territory for Europe and for relations between East and Westand between North and South; more precisely between Europe and the Balkans. We must now think about a new cultural policy similar to the diagonal/transversal axis of the Adriatic that runs from the heart of Central Europe down into the East. This geographical transversality must become a cultural and political transversality capable of creating connections and integrating the experiences and knowledge developed on both shores of the Adriatic and, more in general, in territories where the Adriatic, the Ionian and the Danube serve as imaginary borders, and Venice and Istanbul the root poles of their culture.

Through contributions from colleagues and scholars at different Universities, the intention is to explore the history and evolution of public spaces, to study processes of spatial planning in territories and cities in transition, to define strategies for urban transformation and to confront issues raised by environmental and architectural sustainability, all framed by an up-to-date and contemporary geourbanisticvision of the entire region. Culture and the strength of ideas are viewed as the principal tools for building bridges between knowledge and for rediscovering, in a new relationship between geography, urban planning and architecture, the key to interpreting the processes transforming territories and cities.

The Forum will be structured as a CALL FOR PAPERS/CALL FOR POSTERS subject to peer review by a team of professors from the promoting Universities.

All accepted Papers and Posters will be presented during the FORUM and included in a peer-reviewed volume complete with an ISBN code in the "Architectural Studies and Research" series published by Gangemi Editori . Only the authors of the accepted Papers and Posters will pay a Registration Fee by October 15th 2018 following the indications stated below.

The Forum will be organised in 4 THEMATIC SESSIONS:

  • PUBLIC SPACES IN ADRIATIC AND IONIAN CITIES
  • FRAGILE TRANSITIONS: CITIES, PLANS AND PROJECTS OF URBAN RESILIENCE
  • PHENOMENA OF URBAN RE-GENERATION
  • SUSTAINABILITY FOR A NON-FRAGILE HABITAT
