Rethinking Resettlement

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"How can we make our endeavors clear and approachable enough that we can actually contribute to the public debate at a very high level?"

In Rethinking Resettlement from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University at Buffalo, Erkin Özay, reviews some of the social and design issues involved in rehousing and supporting Buffalo, New York's new Americans. Özay's Spring 2016 UB graduate studio explored the potential for temporary and long-term housing for newly arrived refugees and immigrants, as well as the role of supporting institutions, community assets, and reimagining the existing housing stock. Özay's project investigates "compassionate urbanism." He is interested in how groups of limited means--new and existing residents--support each other through careful intersections.

Organizzare i territori partendo dai suoi abitanti!

@ VOL 4 ON SEP 04, 2017

Organizzare i territori partendo dai suoi abitanti!
È questo il vero senso dell’azione di rigenerazione delle città contemporanee nelle quali i residenti sono i protagonisti del proprio stile di vita e dello sviluppo locale.
Rigenerare partendo non tanto la parte fisica delle città (i fabbricati e le infrastrutture) quanto da quella intangibile delle relazioni tra i residenti (le comunità di abitanti) chiamati a fere impresa in forma cooperativa sul proprio territorio.
L’Agenzia per l’Abitare è lo strumento che trasforma (nei quartieri delle grandi città come nei centri minori) i residenti da fruitori in attori, da utenti in imprenditori in un ribaltamento virtuoso dei ruoli.
