The first OIKONET International Workshop ran from 14th to 19th July 2014 in Lisbon at ISCTE-IUL, with the collaboration of two associated research centers - ISTAR-IUL and DINÂMIA’CET-IUL – and of the digital fabrication laboratory Vitruvius FABLAB-IUL.  
About 50 students from 15 European Schools of Architecture discussed, designed, fabricated and assembled a full-scale prototype of a modular housing system. 25 teachers from OIKONET organizations participated actively in the formulation of design strategies, the project critiques and fabrication process.

WP4 PEDAGOGICAL ACTIVITIES

The second OIKONET international workshop will explore the complementarity of growing and shrinking, two urban development patterns exemplified by the cities of Berlin and Cottbus, respectively.   All over Europe, demographic change has become an undeniable factor for the development perspectives of municipalities. Whereas large metropolises tend to attract new inhabitants, many cities have to realize that growth is something they can no longer rely on. Both growing and shrinking communities are emerging simultaneously confronting cities with unprecedented urban and architectural challenges. While at first sight growth and shrinkage seem to be contrary trends, they have to be considered as two sides of the same coin. The ‘growth paradigm’ must be paralleled by a ‘decline paradigm’ in order to allow us to conceptualize both phenomena and to explore and envision possible futures for cities. Growth usually suggests development and wealth, but this trend presents also a number of urban challenges: How can a city deal with growth in order to maintain adequate living standards and infrastructural supply for its inhabitants? Shrinkage often stands for decline and decay, but it could also be seen as an opportunity for urban renewal. What are then the opportunities of shrinkage and how can a place be downsized without being destroyed?   The workshop will focus on the cities of Berlin, the German capital, attractive to global investors and with a growing number of inhabitants, but also affected by housing shortage; and Cottbus, a former industrial city in Eastern Germany, facing a decline of population and economic stagnation. As part of the Brandenburg region, the two cities share a rich history. Despite their geographical proximity, their development and socio-demographic forecasts are far from being similar.   Using these two cities as case study, the workshop aims to explore urban and architectural scenarios coping with increasing and decreasing urban density. The workshop program includes lectures, design studio work and site visits to the areas of study.  Preparatory learning activities will be carried out by participants prior to the meeting in Cottbus.   Around fifty students and twenty-five faculty members from the fifteen schools of architecture and urban planning members of OIKONET are expected to participate.   If you would like to join the workshop, please contact us at info@oikonet.org

WP4 PEDAGOGICAL ACTIVITIES

The third OIKONET international workshop will take place at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade, from 6th to 11th of June 2016. This workshop will be dedicated to examining strategies that embrace the multiple dimensions, scales and actors involved in the process of creating liveable cities. These strategies will integrate architectural, urban design and urban planning issues to create a multifaceted framework to develop liveable cities.

The area of study is a Kosančićev Venac, a historical part of the city of Belgrade. It is a heterogeneous, mixed-use area connecting the Sava riverfront with the main pedestrian zone, next to the Kalemegdan fortress. Despite its excellent position and evident potential for revitalization, this area has been deteriorating for decades, losing part of its inhabitants and failing to attract new ones. Its predominant use is residential, although there are many institutions of education and culture nearby.
