Symposium: Housing as Revolutionary Architecture (Technion City, Haifa, 23 -2 4 June 2015)

HOUSING AS REVOLUTIONARY ARCHITECTURE
Date: 23-24 June, 2015
Venue: Faculty of Architecture, Technion IIT
Housing as Revolutionary Architecture examines housing architecture at the intersection of two re-emerging processes: demand for housing as socio-political struggle for citizenship and place – and re-engagement with housing as key arena for architectural experimentation. We will examine the intellectual and professional history of housing architecture vis-à-vis society, political action, and traditions of design for social change.
Organized by: Assistant Professor Yael Allweil
Supported by:
History and theory of architecture
Habitat – Housing as experimental architecture
Social hub for community & housing
