Department of Architecture


Delivered by the research centre Cities South of Cancer, this talk explores how architectural design and urban planning works in cities beset by conflict. How can architecture express sites of conflict, and help to alleviate it?

Considering that socio-political conflict often generates urban fragmentation, and, also, that urban fragmentation can exacerbate conflict, this talk discusses how spatial analysis and design practice offer innovative ways to address questions about conflict and its expression on the fabric of cities. Indeed, based on a current project in Cali, Colombia, this talk investigates the way in which design could contribute to conflict suspension.
