Pandemic, economic crisis, migration and climate change: every area – from the periphery of our metropolis to the most remote tropical village – can now be defined as an “emergency context”.
The United Nations – already before 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 man’s primary needs. Finding shelter, receiving education, living healthy are rights that require “containers” in the first place, and architecture – great architecture – would be very little if limited to contexts of well-being; since man is at the center of architecture, and man, in any context, in 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 you have always designed to the bottom, beauty where you are used to not seeing it.
Accustomed to designing in terms of objectives, budget, and understanding of anthropological phenomena, the designers will – instead – acquire a method that can be used in any context, capable of optimizing resources and design stimuli to produce, in any condition, a refined architectural phenomenon.
Through the study of the global scenario and the comparison with the experience of some of the most authoritative voices in the field (from the UN to representatives of the government of territories in emergency), the designers will focus on the technical and compositional strategies to be adopted in the humanitarian, social and emergency field, during 76 hours of lessons, 32 hours of workshop and numerous interventions by renowned professionals.
At the end of the course, YACademy Placement office will guarantee each student a proposal for an internship / collaboration within the partner studios.
