The OIKONET “Global Dwelling” conference has taken place on 25-26 September 2014, organized by the School of Architecture La Salle.  The purpose of the conference has been to explore the global condition of contemporary housing as manifested in the demands for citizen participation in shaping the habitat, housing as a driver of urban regeneration, housing adaptability to new social and family structures, housing policies to provide affordable housing, and sustainability and energy efficiency of housing buildings, among others. These issues have been confronted from a multidisciplinary perspective that encompasses architecture and urban planning, sociology and anthropology, economics and housing policy.

The program has been structured in three sessions:  1. Conceptualizing contemporary housing research 2. Rethinking housing design learning and teaching and 3. Shaping the habitat with community participation. The program closed with a round table discussion about the topic global dwelling.

There have been fifty-six participants from twenty-five countries representing universities, research centers, local administrations and professional organizations.  Seventeen presentations were delivered from OIKONET partners. Eight OIKONET partners have presented their work in the poster session, along with four researchers from other organizations. A section has been dedicated to present eight posters produced in the Lisbon Workshop by the participating students.  Overall, twenty posters were exhibited.​

Barcelona International Conference

The second OIKONET international conference of the series Global Dwelling will take place in Bratislava, on September 25, 2015, organized by the Faculty of Architecture Slovak University of Technology. The conference will focus on discussing regeneration strategies as mechanisms that are applied to improve the existing living conditions in urban areas around the world.
 
Nowadays, various local and global factors cause the appearance of disadvantaged communities and declining urban areas worldwide. Instead of offering universal solutions, contemporary integrated interventions are intended to tackle specific problems by encompassing social, economic and urban dimensions. By building on existing local forces – involving all stakeholders and the local community in the process of finding solutions–, urban areas can unleash their endogenous regeneration potential. Even though being deeply influenced by local conditions, this process acquires a global dimension when certain mechanisms and policies – such as planned gentrification and social mix – are reproduced at multiple locations and cultures.

The conference will discuss the implications of such integrated approaches based on the design and implementation of strategies for the regeneration of communities – at a social, economic and environmental level.
More information about the conference can be found in the conference blog.

Bratislava International Conference

The third OIKONET conference on “Global Dwelling” has taken place in Manchester, UK, September 23, 2016, hosted by the Grenfell-Baines Institute of Architecture, School of Art, Design and Fashion, University of Central Lancashire.

This third conference showcased the results obtained in the three years of activity of OIKONET intertwining research, pedagogy and community participation around the topic “Global Dwelling”. During this period OIKONET partners have been involved in the design and implementation of pedagogic and research activities which have brought together schools of architecture and planning, research groups, professional organizations and local administrations. This is reflected in the collaborative learning spaces and workshops, community-based projects and participatory actions carried out with the participation of architecture students, lecturers, researchers and citizens.

The program has been structured in three sessions:  1. Sustainability of housing environments 2. Innovation in housing design and planning and 3. Participation in housing design and construction.
