20-22 April 2020 – DTRS
We are very pleased to announce the 13th symposium in the DTRS (Design
Thinking Research Symposium) series, which will take place on April 20-22,
2021, at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. The
theme of the symposium will be:
Expanding the frontiers of design: A blessing or a curse?
“Degrowth is about redistribution by design, not by collapse”
The architecture profession tends to assume that there is always more to build. We need more infrastructure, more houses and more office space to accommodate economies and societies that are forever expanding. Greedy though it may be, this mindset is supported by the pervasive belief that a society’s success is best measured not in terms of humane measures such as the capacity for care and play but in economic terms such as market expansion. The result for the built environment is constant reconfiguration and extension into new territory to a degree that our planet can barely sustain.
This growth obsession is a central premise of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019, Exploring how the endless pursuit of growth has caused planetary weariness and social division, the Triennale invites visitors to imagine what a society of Degrowth could be like and how architecture could serve it.
Dimensions.Guide is a comprehensive reference database of dimensioned drawings documenting the standard measurements and sizes of the everyday objects and spaces that make up our world.
Created as a universal resource to better communicate the basic properties, systems, and logics of our built environment, Dimensions.Guide is a free platform for increasing public and professional knowledge of life and design.
My five cents: Maybe not, but is the best way to start!!
It seems to be the author is confused about Design, Architecture, Urbanism.
They work together but with different priorities!
Spoiler: Biased article.
Designers may not be able to save the world by themselves, but they must help avert societal problems and the looming climate crisis, says Christine Murray.
Designers, you know what your problem is? You just don’t know when to stop. You just have to design bloody everything. You get a piece of city to masterplan and rethink every inch. But that’s not what I call a city, that’s a petri dish.
