EAAE ANNUAL CONFERENCE Delft, Netherlands August 31, 2016
The conference ‘For Example Delft’ addresses approaches in architecture education, their past, present & future in relation to professional practice and the architectural discipline. Using the example of Delft, the conference starts from the observation that the broad field of architecture and the built environment carries a (re)assembled character that has lost its Modern, structured and disciplinary way. Moreover the conference addresses the issue what architecture research currently means and upon which policies Delft as an institution has set eyes, for example with regard to its ambitions, organization and profile.
Conference registration will start 30 March 2016 – you will be able to find the link on the EAAE website, via google or EAAE2016@tudelft.nl.

STADSLAB MASTER CLASS
Lisbon, Portugal April 15, 2016
In this international Master-Class you will engage in a highly challenging urban regeneration case-study in one of Lisbon’s oldest districts. Mouraria originated as a 13th century Moorish neighbourhood and remained a marginal downtown area. Nowadays, parts of Mouraria are affected by tourism, others are still deprived with high levels of migrant population and social housing. Cheap property prices and proximity to other tourist destinations (Alfama, Castello) raise realistic assumptions that Mouraria will face large influx of investment in real estate and tourism infrastructure, resulting in gentrification.

INTERNATIONAL MASTER IN INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE
Hasselt, Belgium May 1, 2016
The faculty of Architecture and Arts welcomes applications for an innovative international master’s programme in interior architecture with a strong focus on adaptive reuse.
It is safe to assume that (interior) architects will have to deal increasingly with the transformation and adaptation of the built environment. Today, the role of architecture is being re-defined due to demographic, economic and ecological challenges. Transition and reuse take centre stage in the practice and theory of the profession. This academic master’s programme is innovative as it considers preservation through the act of adaptive reuse instead of mere conservation and restoration.
Rather than relying on an archaeological perspective, it emphasises a designerly approach as to give new and unexpected energy to buildings. Therefore, the programme seeks to train students who explore and activate the rich potential of existing sites through design supported by research and theory.

Bucharest, Romania October 1, 2016
East Centric Architecture Triennale is the necessary cultural event meant to enable a tight collaboration between architects, theorists, architecture critics and historians from East and Central Europe and from all over the world, with the aim of representing and presenting them both to the specialized and general audience. East Centric Architecture Triennale supports and promotes critical discourse both among practitioners and architecture theorists, critics and historians. The varied format of activities within the Triennale (exhibitions, conferences, debates, competitions) offers an overall image of the multiple discourses from the East and Central European space – particular discourses which however share common elements that need to be acknowledged in order to support a qualitative growth of architecture in the region.
