Housing rehabilitation : what are the operational, scientific and political issues for the 21st century? : Call for contributions of work from Masters, final-year project and doctorate level

publié le 29 juin 2018

Organized by Plan Urbanisme Construction Architecture (PUCA), in partnership with the Design and Architecture Department at the Polytechnic University of Turin, the International Conference “Housing rehabilitation : what are the operational, scientific and political issues for the 21st century?” will take place in Turin on 22 and 23 November 2018.

To fuel these two days of exchange, the organizing partners are launching a call for contributions to identify, promote and highlight urban and architectural projects and scientific work from doctoral research.

The work could relate to the legacy of housing built in the 20th century, as well as the reconversion or transformation (partial demolitions, heightening, extensions, etc.) of historic or commercial buildings into housing. The questions tackled could relate to urban, architectural, historic, legacy, construction and technical perspectives, as well as contemporary social, political, economic and environmental issues.

This call for contributions is open to students and young graduates in architecture and engineering, as well as doctoral students and those holding a doctoral degree (all disciplines).

The Masters work and final-year projects selected will be presented in the exhibition running alongside the International Conference. Taking the form of a travelling exhibition, it will then be presented at international educational and scientific events. Doctoral work and scientific articles chosen will be published in the book of the conference’s output. The panel will select, from among these works, those that will be presented during the International Conference.
