Architecture of Peace is an international long-term research and action project in which a large number of stakeholders are involved. The project will consist of local case studies, interventions, university research studios, debates, publications and exhibitions.
How do we materialize peace? How do politics, finance and power, social structuring and empowerment need to balance with design processes? And how does this lead to a stable, safe, clean and inviting environment that facilitates peaceful interaction between groups of people?
On the 3rd and 4th of May 2010 Archis hosted the kick-off conference of the project Architecture of Peace at the NAI, Rotterdam with a series of lecturers and participants expert in the field of post-conflict architecture.
