Portugal – Lisbon - Technical University of Lisbon, Faculty of Architecture
Ambivalence stands for the simultaneously contradictory and opposing perception of a given phenomenon, which despite disorienting in its manifestations, may be regarded as a condition from which to build renewed frameworks of analysis and critique. These are the landscapes of a changing urban Europe. No longer confined to the City but ever more dependent on stronger spaces of citizenship.
Scholars are invited to participate with original papers on a multiple disciplinary basis – urbanism and architecture, social sciences and landscape, design and technology. Three tracks were designed to bringing together different approaches into a shared topic: Empty Cities, Collective spaces, Living infrastructures.
