Invited editors: Michel Melenhorst, Gonçalo Canto Moniz, Paulo Providência
Deadline for full paper submission - Extended dealine 22 july 2018
Architecture is facing new challenges caused by developments like globalization in general, global warming and demographic changes. These trends have a strong impact on the role of the architect and related specialist. Because of these changes in the architects profession there is a demand for adapting the training of architects accordingly. This question is especially relevant in dealing with urban areas where the 20th century buildings are waiting for strategic interventions, ranging from renovation, reconstruction, transformation to demolishing.
The architect needs new tools, drawing and sketching is not enough to understand neither the building nor its users or inhabitants. More complex methodologies are needed as they have to integrate not only the aesthetic and technical dimensions, but also the social one. These inclusive approach demands for a dialogue with other disciplines, promoting an effective interdisciplinarity.
In order to train this interdisciplinarity spirit for future architects, in architectural education the design studio should be more a laboratorium, than a workshop, where new tools and methods are explored and tested by means of research
