International Conference on Education through the Built EnvironmentReading the Space.2nd Edition
Live streaming on Zoom
The languages of the conference are Italian and English.
Learning to ‘read’ in order to ‘write’; learning to look at the space that surrounds us in order to find new shared solutions.
On January 2019 MAXXI Education organized the first international conference on education on the built environment to involve architecture students and architects, teachers of any kind and level, heritage educators and professionals in the field of culture and education. That congress aimed at providing an overview of the best international practices in the field of education on architecture in order to understand the architectural landscape around us, raise awareness about the spaces of everyday life and contribute to the active definition of their qualitative and relational traits.
Our habits and our relationship with the architectural space, starting from home space, have been put to the test by the pandemic and MAXXI Education meets the challenge of the ongoing transformations organizing a second edition of Reading the Space.
By enabling a direct interaction with the professionals who created innovative projects for different audiences, the new edition of the conference provides an opportunity to discuss educational approaches, planning methodologies and practical instruments in order to un-learn (and deconstruct) predetermined linguistic codes. A dialogue to create different ‘alphabets of the space’ and tools to read the environment in which we live in, closer to our feeling and to ever changing needs.
The conference is devoted to architecture students and architects, teachers of any kind and level, heritage educators and professionals in the field of culture and education.
Participation at the conference is free of charge but registration is compulsory – until capacity is reached.
To attend the conference please fill in the form online by Tuesday the 2nd of March 2021 at 1.00 p.m..
