ecosistema urbano at the Conference on Ethics in Architectural Practice, Wroclaw Oct. 15-16th

Category: ⚐ EN+architecture+ecosistema urbano

Ecosistema Urbano will be presenting their work at the Conference on Ethics in Architectural Practice, organized by The Faculty of Architecture from the University of Technology. The conference will take place in Wroclaw on Oct. 15-16th.

The emergence of the consumerist society has changed the role of culture and architecture. Zygmunt Bauman wrote:
Since culture had lost its status as a necessary tool in the design, construction, and maintenance of the social order, cultural artifacts were withdrawn from the storefront, and, following improvement, made available for sale at the Shopping Centre. Can we manage as a profession to survive, in view of the dissolution of criteria for beauty and usefulness, in a world of fluid values and aesthetics? Are the new, ethics-oriented architectural movements now gaining authority, such as slow architecture and sustainable design, a hope for the renewal of architecture?

The three main topics are:

1. Education in ethics for students of architecture, understood as an awakening of ethical consciousness.

2. Ethics in design. Professional attitudes towards architecture as moral statements.

3. A model Code of Ethics for architects.
