Ground(s) – Mapping, designing and caring: towards a convivial society
2020 has shown us that we live in a fragile and isolated society. Now is the time to re-establish relationships towards a more convivial ground(s): we propose to participate in this movement through architecture, urban and territorial planning, and design. Ground(s) is a rich and polysemic notion that encloses both the tangible and intangible.
Ground(s) is an essential and non-renewable component of our natural capital that does not only contribute to our basic human needs but is also a key component of our sense of belonging and heritage. The ground(s) constitutes the place where communities grow and leave their imprint. In this respect, they can also function as a medium to shape, establish and strengthen relationships.
The conference is organised by the PhD program in Architecture and Design Cultures – Department of Architecture – University of Bologna
