Symposium "Architecture for Autonomy"
:: subscribe to the event Architecture for Autonomy: activating learning territories ::

“Architecture for autonomy: activating learning territories” invites architects, academics, activists and members, of cooperatives, NGOs and social movements, to dialogue about new urban pedagogies and ways of fostering communal and autonomous territories.

In recent years we have seen the rise of innovative practices of collective construction that point towards an experience of democracy in action and social emancipation. How can we empower even further this transitional movement from an hegemonic and sometimes colonialist and top down demeanor towards a more complex, inclusive, resilient and ecologically integrated set of architectural practices?

By discussing an architecture for autonomy, we are reclaiming the right to the city and developing a resilient capacity, while at the same time building a shared urban commons framework. Ultimately this dialogue wishes to encourage counter-narratives and the emergence of points of view that question how we perceive identity, time, the others, community, city and territory.

The symposium is being organized by the collective Escola Sem Muros, and will be a collateral event of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
