#Public Debate

RECORVERY SPACES 

How Architecture Creates a Better Living
Saturday, 29 June 2019, 1 pm – 9 pm / ANCB Metropolitan Laboratory
Event
SoSe 19


In many regions of the world, individuals, ethnic groups and entire societies are continuously exposed to disasters. Natural catastrophes, wars, epidemics, political repression and the resulting displacement, but also marginalisation and neglect cause deep physical and psychological traumas.

The symposium will examine the questions, what positive influence can the design of spaces and surroundings have on the recovery process of the people and societies affected and, in general, what can space-making contribute to a better and healthier living environment around the world? The dialogue and networking event will be accompanied by a presentation of the Healing Garden project in Chamchamal by Jiyan Foundation, ZRS Architekten Ingenieure, TU Berlin and BU Weimar.

By registration only.
