Pandemic, economic crisis, migration and climate change: every area – from the outskirts of our metropolis to the most remote tropical village – can now be defined as “emergency”. The United Nations – already prior to the pandemic cycle – estimated that the fragmentation of conflicts, combined with the effects of the economic and ecological crisis, was generating a humanitarian emergency greater than that caused by the Second World War. In this context, the architect plays a fundamental role, because architecture responds to the primary needs of man.Finding shelter, receiving an education, living in health are rights that require “containers” in the first place, and architecture – great architecture – would be very little if limited to contexts of well-being; because at the center of architecture there is man, and man, in any context, under any condition, deserves dignity and beauty.
This is why the course in “Architecture for Humanity” was born , to train designers who know how to compose meaningful architectures even in the most complex contexts , to bring quality where one has always planned downwards, beauty where one is used to not seeing it. Trained to think in terms of objectives, budget and understanding of anthropological phenomena, the designers will thus acquire a method that can be used in any context , capable of optimizing resources and design stimuli to give rise, in any condition, to cultured and refined architectural phenomena.
Through the study of the global scenario and the comparison with the experience of some of the most authoritative voices in the sector (from the UN to representatives of the government of territories in emergency), the designers will deepen the technical and compositional issues to be adopted in the humanitarian and social fields. and emergency, according to a path consisting of 76 hours of frontal teaching, 32 hours of laboratory and numerous interventions by well-known professionals.
