“2A ArchTalk is A Comprehensive Platform the International Architectural Interaction & Communication”
Local + Global
Rethinking the Local and Global in a fast-changing World
In the dynamics of our inter-dependent and fast-changing societies, the global appears to be implicitly or explicitly prioritized in architectural thinking, practice, and education: By the extended use of new technologies in design and construction, by the speed of information diffusion through the World Wide Web, by the internationally established evaluation standards, by the legislative framework controlling the mobility of architects and the harmonization of architectural education, by the internationalized industrial production, etc.
The local is encouraged by the expectation of a multicultural society in a global economy, by the will to follow cultural continuities, by the locally established value systems and practices, by the respect of the tradition as a convergent background of stability and permanence from which virtually the innovative can be detached, defined and tested.
To what extent is the local or can be a dynamic source of inspiration, creativity, and innovation in contemporary architectural thinking and practice?
Session 1:Local+Global: Innovative mergings in a fast-changing world
Can architectural practice and education contribute to the creation of a contemporary narrative on the ‘glocal’ which will glorify the simultaneity and co-presence of the particular with the broadly accepted, of the specific with the universal, of the emergent with the imported?
Session 2: Local+Global: Creative Symbioses in a fast-changing world
Can architectural practice and education contribute to the enhancement of the role of the symbiosis of the local and the global in contemporary architectural experimentations?
Session 3: Local+Global:
Local wisdom and advanced global know-how in a fast-changing world
How can architectural practice and education promote the inspirational power of the local to be supported or amalgamated by advanced global know-how?
Session 4: Education + Practice: Creative synergies in a fast-changing world
Are our educational environments protective of the integrity of local architectural cultures when they are exposed to fresh ideas generated by international experiences?
