CRITICAL PRACTICE IN AN AGE OF COMPLEXITY
Place: University of Arizona, USA
Dates: 22 – 23 February 2018
Abstracts: 05 Dec 2017
Donald Trump promises investment in infrastructure, China continues to urbanize and pollute, global cities are surrounded by slums and housing is unaffordable and simultaneously a form of capital investment.
The issues of living in cities, towns and communities are intrinsically related to the buildings we construct, the houses we make and the roads we build etc. These all reflect and inform social development, community conflict, economic opportunity, demographic disparity and more. These conferences seek to explore this complexity in its broadest sense.
These conferences seek interdisciplinary dialogue. Disciplines welcome include architecture, housing, urban planning, sociology, human geography, cultural studies and more.
Publications are organized as part of PARADE (Publication & Research in Art, Architectures, Design and Environments). It is coordinated by AMPS and involves Routledge Taylor&Francis, UCL Press, Intellect Books, Libri Publishing, UCL Press, Vernon Press and more.
