In the recent past, we can perceive a shift from an either-or logic to a both-and one. At present, it is accepted that both local and global can creatively contribute to the quest for novelty. We increasingly understand that there is always something from the past embedded in the new, and that something from the local is always rooted in the global. This symbiotic and sympathetic relationship is an important demand of contemporary contemplation giving meaning, that is to say value, to every contemporary innovative creation.
In order to investigate this symbiosis of the global with the local and to teach it creatively in our Schools of Architecture, we need to define what the local is. We are kindly asking you to help us in this investigation by answering the following questions.
