SPACE INTERWEAVINGS
ethos-social practices-architecture
Thessaloniki, 21 - 23 May 2021
Contemporary era is marked by the multidimensional crisis of the conventional configurations of way of existence, as these are displayed within the context of social expediency, causing translocations within the field of architecture. Contemporary concern regarding the subject of ethics, as descriptive, normative or meta-ethics, traverses all sectors of social practice and all the cognitive objects that constitute the subject of all topics. Ethics, a disputed term that is relativized in accordance with the formative cultural, geographical, environmental, technological, social, political and economic context, has since Plato to contemporary thinkers provided answers to questions relating to values, meanings and how to live as an individual or a society, proposing concepts or conceptual systems differing in their scientific character, particularly in cases of descriptive ethics and meta-ethics.
Space, as the material field in which personal, collective and social practices develop, is imbued with the values and meanings of each occasion and is shaped, as regards its organisation, content and form, in correlation with the different aspects of a predominant ethics and/or the conflicting value systems that characterise the specific production context. In contemporary conditions of economic, social, cultural and environmental crisis, the degree of questioning (this valuable arising existential situation) of established values in design process and architectural education leads to a dynamic reflection upon the ‘ethical’ dimension of space. However, the social inclusion in the design process is not always fruitful. It would be possible to examine the relation between ethics and space in the field of the profession (in the practice of architecture, of urban design, of town planning and of landscape architecture) and in that of theory as it is being shaped by the above cognitive fields and their intersection with others (philosophy, the natural and human sciences, art), through an interdiscliplinary logic.
Questions such as how far the different manifestations of ethics influence the production of space or how far space itself as a field of practices and activities influences the constitution of meanings and values are raised here with a view to examining socio-spatial issues over the course of time, with emphasis on contemporary era. Architecture, as the field that organically integrates the social dimension of spatiality, constitutes the main ground for discourse on the interweavings of ethos, social practices and space. The objective of this interdisciplinary Conference with international participation is to both answer questions and raise new ones for investigation and exploration, thus making a contribution to the current debate on built space and its ethical qualities

The Organizing Committee invites authors to submit paper proposals for a 15’ oral presentation which will be related to the main thematic fields listed below:
