Architecture and Spatial Planning

Until recent times the prevailing architectural design and spatial planning epistemology considered built up and geographical areas as technical, social and economic entities for classifying, profitable use and exploiting. For being an important player with smart-city technologies today, we have to take into account our common prodigious wisdom with accepted knowledge for creating resource oriented technology. Prodigious built up structures of former times “goes to the roots of human experience and is thus of more than technical and aesthetic interest. Moreover, it is architecture without a dogma”.
This year we will work on patterns for the city of the future where everyone is a participant designer in which technical disciplinary languages and barriers are exchanged for a shared understanding of the design problem. Ecological design is a system of assembling conceptual, material and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms. It implies any form of design that minimizes environmentally destructive impacts by integrating itself with living processes to minimize resource depletion, preserve water cycles and respects species diversity, etc.
