2017_Designing-Housing--and-City-Transformations

International Workshop
“Designing Housing and City Transformations – Нови Београд”
The University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture

01-05 June 2017

Participants:
University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture
Urban-Think Tank Chair of Architecture and Urban Design, Prof. Alfredo Brillembourg & Prof. Hubert Klumpner, ETH Zurich

The workshop will take place at the Faculty of Architecture University of Belgrade in the period 01 – 05 June 2017. Workshop is realized within the project Smart and Creative Cities for Knowledge-Based Societies, as a result of cooperation between Faculty of Architecture University of Belgrade and ETH Zurich under the SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) SCOPES Program.

The goal of the workshop is to emphasize opportunities for the activation and re-adaptation of New Belgrade’s modernist housing and open space legacy and to present initiatives concerned with encouraging economic, environmental and social aspects of urban development. The workshop will gather around representatives from academia, the public sector, experts from practice and students of different levels of study in order to foster a multi-disciplinary, inter-sectorial and divergent thinking engaged with both bottom – up and top – down approaches to urban development.

Today urban development requires more flexible approaches to the contemporary urban problems and according to that, the utilization of innovative approaches including technology in urban areas is both inevitable and necessary. In the developing of such approaches, analysis and testing of potentials for integrated urban development should be based on consideration and the inclusion of in the planning and management process. Taking into account that the concepts of the smart, creative as well sustainable and responsive city etc, is becoming increasingly used in the professional narrative, the workshop will critically assess these concepts and propose transformation proposals to the variety of different spatial patterns of urban space of Novi Beograd.

Workshop explores the possibilities of application these innovative concepts to the modernist legacy of New Belgrade. Block 21 is a representative example of Belgrade’s large-scale residential settlement built in 1966 according to modernist principles and created under the cultural influences of socialist ideology. Today, in the period of post-socialist transition, numerous ideas for the transformation of New Belgrade emerged, however, no adequate solutions have been found so far. The selected case study of Block 21 represents an urban laboratory where the participants will explore the possibilities of spatial improvement of the New Belgrade without disturbing the integrity of the architectural and urban expression.

The results of the workshop should develop design and planning solutions for housing units and open spaces in order to improve the urban and life quality of the citizens.


During the workshop, Prof. Alfredo Brillembourg and Haris Piplaš from ETH Zurich will hold lectures at the Faculty of Architecture.

The lectures will take place on:
