Architectural Democracy

TALKS & WORKSHOPS on "ARCHITECTURAL DEMOCRACY"

LECTURE TYPE 1:
The Architectural Democracy's Matrix (45 min
)

This lecture will focus on the Architectural Democracy's proposed framework to explore the relationships between architecture and democracy. The proposed matrix creates common ground for diverse stakeholders to better understand the complexity of cities, and thus to participate more actively in it. It is argued that this process provides a structured tool to evaluate the quality of both architecture and democracy. It contextualizes the concept of ‘Architectural Democracy’ and gives the possibility to gather data from both citizens and experts, and to later develop it into a quantifiable set of metrics. 

LECTURE TYPE 2: 

Architectural Democracy's works: from gamification to the social responsability of architecture (45 min)

This lecture will give an overview of the works of Architectural Democracy. From its research matrix, Gamified Cohousing, urban planning games with the MIT and Legos, the Decisions City with the Venice Biennale, the Architecture By Kids with the Qatar Foundation, etc.

LECTURE TYPE 3: 

Architectural Democracy's "Gamified Cohousing" (45 min)

This lecture will focus on the Spin-off work of Architectural Democracy entitled Gamified Cohousing. Showcasing the pilot project, the 5-step method and current ongoing projects.

WHAT WILL THE ATTENDEE BENEFIT FROM THIS LECTURE?

Attending this lecture or workshop will give you a deeper insight on the relationship between architecture and politics. The everyday life of the practice of architecture by Pedro Aibéo, who has built and designed over 50 building worldwide and the implications with politics.

WHAT IS THE NOVELTY OF THIS TOPIC?

This is part of an ongoing Doctoral research work, and as any PhD, its claims are new, so attending this lecture will give you a completely new take on some pressing societal issues.

CAN THIS TOPIC AND LECTURES FOSTER PARTNERSHIPS?

These lectures are part not only of a PhD Research but already of a larger group of professionals who have been implementing on field some new ideas. For example in opening the facades of buildings or making low cost 3D of our homes for open source usage.

We are thus most happy to pursue partnerships at both research and industry level and return to give further talks on this and related matters.
