OIKODOMOS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
Brussels, 27-28 October 2011 at W&K Sint-Lucas School of Architecture
Paleizenstraat 65 1030 Brussels
This conference brings together professionals, academics and experts dealing with contemporary housing studies and with pedagogic innovation. It will provide a forum for discussing current approaches to housing design and planning and the latest developments in pedagogic innovation brought about by the integration of ICT technologies in architectural education. The latest state of development of the OIKODOMOS Virtual Campus will be presented and discussed during the conference.
As preparation for the International Conference in Brussels, we have created a forum to discuss some of the topics presented in the accepted papers. The topics cover the two areas of study included in the OIKODOMOS project: housing studies and pedagogy. The purpose of the forum is to engage conference participants -as well as the interested public- in a debate which will continue during the conference and also after it. The topics discussed will help to identify some of the most relevant topics in today’s contemporary housing design and planning which can then be later studied in the learning activities of the OIKODOMOS Virtual Campus.
These activities are part of the OIKODOMOS project. OIKODOMOS is a research project financed by the Lifelong Learning programme 2007-2009 and 2010-2011. It is being carried out by higher education institutions and research centers from Belgium, France, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.The goal of the project is to establish a virtual campus to promote the study of dwelling at a European scale.
The forum is open and free to participate; for the conference it is still possible to register. All information is available from http://project-oikodomos.blogspot.com/
