Dream – Play – Challenge: The Future of Residential Living – Internationales Symposium zum Thema „Wohnen der Zukunft“ im Rahmen des Festivals Women in Architecture Berlin 2020 | Bewerben Sie sich bis zum 17.02.2020
What does it mean today to reside, to be a (non-)resident, to be in residence or to build a residence? The traditional concept of the “residential” has been thrown into question by the challenges of the 21st century. Residing – an act so fundamental to humanity – is contested by socio-economical and cultural uncertainties, be it by precariousecological conditions, forced uprootedness, re-de ned concepts of gender and family, or by culturally diversemodels of domesticity. At the same time, the concept of the “residential” continues to lure us with its echoes ofstability and permanence, as a term which conjures the desire for a home within societies that often nd it more and more dif cult to provide one.
Are traditional notions of the “residential” still tenable and generative? In what form can ways of residing that challenge traditions and respond to current pressures be built or imagined today? In the past, architects havecontributed innovative though often prescriptive proposals to such questions. We are speci cally interested incontributions that use contested situations as a starting point to Dream – Play – Challenge the production of residential space.
Projects and research may work through (but are not restricted to) the following approaches:• the playfulness of dwelling
• cooperative, collaborative, and performative residential practice
• the language of residential place-making
• ctional residential space, dreams of residing
• antagonism, provocation or persistence in the residence
