Inclusion makes Architecture / «Methodologycafé»
Saturday, 27.11.2021, 14 – 17h
The «Methodologycafé» is a saturday-afternoon workshop open to everyone in which Architecture for Refugees would like to present the «Inclusion makes Architecture» project and we will reflect together on Inclusion.
Architecture for Refugees SWITZERLAND is a non-profit association working for better inclusion of refugees, focussing on architectural and urban projects.
Through the project «Inclusion makes Architecture» they are building a database of best practices, analyzing projects carried out by selected organizations working with refugees. For this, they have developed a spider diagram. The latter enables them to objectively compare the subjective experiences of projects. In order to do that, they have defined some characteristics of inclusion, such as togetherness, interaction, identity, accessibility, equality and diversity. The final aim is to reflect on the projects and identify future development.
The workshop will start with a Community Lunch to get to know each other. Then, Architecture for Refugees CH will present the «Inclusion makes Architecture» project: explaining the methodology, reflecting on the process of «Inclusion makes Architecture», and presenting the first results.
Guests are welcome to present their project to start an open and critical discussion and fill in the spider diagram.
The Methodologycafé takes place in English and German in the Community Pavilion at Shedhalle.
«Inclusion makes Architecture» is funded by Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council. The Community Pavilion is a project by the two associations Architecture for Refugees SCHWEIZ and ExpoTranskultur
