Chile será organizador de la 18th International Docomomo Conference & Students Workshop 2024

leave a comment

Vía FADEU-UC.

El presidente de Docomomo Chile, profesor de la Escuela de Arquitectura [de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile] Horacio Torrent, anunció que Docomomo Internacional ha aceptado la propuesta de Chile para la organización de la 18th International Docomomo Conference & Students Workshop Chile 2024, titulada “Modern Futures: Sustainable development and cultural diversity”

La propuesta, advierte Torrent, involucra hasta el momento a Docomomo Chile, la Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Estudios Urbanos UC; la Escuela de Arquitectura UC; el Centro del Patrimonio Cultural UC; la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso; la Universidad Católica del Norte; la Universidad del Bio Bio; la Universidad Austral de Chile; la Universidad San Sebastián; y la Universidad Finis Terrae. Ademas de varias instituciones universitarias latinoamericanas: Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Perú, Universidad de Belgrano, Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco y Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.

La propuesta fue aprobada de manera unánime en el Advisory Board, y fue apoyada por 34 países: Armenia, Argentina, Australia, Bélgica, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Iberia, Israel, Itália, Kosovo, Líbano, Macau, México, Netherlands, North Macedônia, Panamá, Perú, Quebec, República Dominicana, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sul, Switzerland, Sudán, Turquía, USA, y Venezuela; además de los reconocimientos de Irán, Hong Kong, y Francia.

“Estamos felices por este tremendo logro, que nos propone el que es el mayor desafío que Docomomo Chile ha enfrentado hasta ahora, y agradecemos el apoyo de todos, que permitió mostrar un capítulo nacional fuerte y unido, y esperamos contar con el apoyo de todos para la organización de este evento”, sostuvo el profesor Torrent.

 Sobre la postulación “Modern Futures: Sustainable development and cultural diversity”

La propuesta tiene como objetivo remarcar la exploración y el desarrollo de nuevas ideas para el futuro de un entorno construido sostenible basado en las experiencias pasadas del Movimiento Moderno.

La arquitectura del Movimiento Moderno se extendió por todo el mundo, y su realización en diferentes lugares fueron fuentes de innovación, nuevos conocimientos y creatividad.

El Movimiento Moderno ha sido muchas veces considerado en su condición unitaria; las historias y teorías han enfatizado tradicionalmente sus significados universales. Pero, de hecho, asumió la diversidad como uno de sus temas. Por lo tanto, hay tantos tipos diferentes de arquitectura moderna en tantos lugares. La conferencia será el momento para debatir el legado del movimiento moderno frente a la diferencia, la diversidad y la necesidad de un nuevo enfoque global.

Por otro lado, la promoción de la conservación del patrimonio moderno requiere la difusión de técnicas y métodos, que pueden ser adaptados a diferentes circunstancias, lugares y climas. La reutilización adaptativa es esencialmente el reconocimiento de la diversidad, pero al mismo tiempo es una forma de lograr la conservación de manera sostenible. La sustentabilidad involucra aspectos materiales y energéticos, así como sociales y de trascendencia. Los objetivos de las Naciones Unidas para el desarrollo sostenible nos brindan un marco para pensar sobre la conservación del patrimonio moderno asociado con las transformaciones globales necesarias.

Nuestro compromiso y conocimiento sobre la conservación del patrimonio moderno puede formar parte de la agenda internacional en busca de la sustentabilidad, entendida en un sentido amplio. El mundo se urbaniza cada vez más, y la reutilización de los espacios creados por el movimiento moderno se vuelve crucial en el entorno metropolitano, más que nada porque la naturaleza se introdujo en el tejido urbano, y las comunidades que la habitan reclaman su derecho a una ciudad más inclusiva, así como una mejor calidad de vida. Y los conjuntos del movimiento moderno brindan un mejor ambiente que la ciudad que se construye hoy.

Docomomo

Docomomo Internacional es una organización sin fines de lucro dedicada a la documentación y conservación de edificios, sitios y barrios del Movimiento Moderno. Fue iniciado en 1988 por Hubert-Jan Henket, arquitecto y profesor, y Wessel de Jonge, arquitecto e investigador en la Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad Técnica de Eindhoven, Países Bajos.

Las misiones de Docomomo International son:

  • actuar como guardián cuando los edificios importantes del movimiento moderno en cualquier lugar estén bajo amenaza.
  • intercambiar ideas relacionadas con la tecnología de la conservación, la historia y la educación.
  • fomentar el interés en las ideas y la herencia del movimiento moderno.
  • elicitar la responsabilidad hacia esta herencia arquitectónica reciente.

Desde su creación, DOCOMOMO International ha experimentado un rápido crecimiento, estableciéndose como un actor importante no solo en el ámbito de la conservación, sino también en el campo más amplio de la cultura arquitectónica. La naturaleza pluralista e interdisciplinaria de DOCOMOMO International, debido a su capacidad para reunir a historiadores, arquitectos, urbanistas, paisajistas, conservacionistas, docentes, estudiantes y funcionarios públicos, ha sido un gran activo.

LAST DAYS: 17th International Docomomo Conference 2022 – Call for Abstracts Deadline: 30th September 2021

leave a comment

Vía Docomomo International.

The call for abstract for the 17th International Docomomo Conference, hosted at the School of Architecture of Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, Spain, between 6th and 9th September, 2022, under the theme “Modern Design: Social Commitment & Quality of Life” is open until 30th September 2021.

This theme will encourage us to reflect upon how re-thinking interior space in the widest sense was tackled, the different contexts where it was developed and who the main artifices were. If the proposed theme is, in itself, pertinent, today it is of even greater interest as, curiously, the improvement in the health conditions of habitable spaces is an insistent social demand as a result of the international spread on the COVID 19 pandemic.

#01 The Avant-Gardes. First generation architects
This section will analyse the contribution of avantgardes and the designs of recognised architects such as Le Corbusier or Mies van der Rohe, paying special attention to those that transformed households through the mechanization of domestic tasks and the extensive use of ingenious systems of storage and transformable furniture. The search for a healthier and easier life is exemplified in the Margarete Lihotzky’s innovative Frankfurt kitchen (1925). Likewise, it can be claimed that the environmental component was introduced early on by Alvar Aalto with his concern for the landscape, and even Walter Gropius’ social hygiene concerns that invite a re-reading in a similar manner.

#02 Post-war. International expansion
Numerous examples illustrate the worldwide expansion of modern design, now representing timeless models. The aim of this section is to provide a comprehensive reading, although, at the same time, taking geographical particularities into account and contemplating the diversity of cases by analysing relationships and influences.

#03 The Latin American contribution
This section envisages a panorama that will include various generations of architects and from a wide geographical perspective, each location with its own particularities and highlighting their contributions to design and their possible influence.

#04 Women. Pioneers and modern
This section studies the subtleties and, at the same time, the functional designs of female architects, so as to recover their place in history, as essential figures in design and whose works continue to be marketed to this day.

#05 Iberia. Cultural identity
This section deals with the evolution of modern design in Portugal and Spain and analyses both particularities and international influences, bearing in mind that both countries suffered long periods of dictatorships.

#06 New materials and innovative technologies
Modernity was a continuous factory of innovative and experimental solutions that made their aging, sometimes unfortunately, unpredictable. This section will allow us to reflect upon those systems and their development over a long period of time. It will also provoke discussion on the problems, pathologies and specific intervention technologies for rehabilitation.

#07 Urban design and quality of life
This section includes works that investigate the characteristics of modern urban form and public space. Contributions to the processes that make up the modern urban structure will be analysed. There is also room for studies on the design of urban areas focused both on the general approach and on particular elements – pavements, urban furniture… Of interest in this chapter are those reflections that address aspects of the use of public space and the relationship between urban form and climate change, such as planning, the city open to all…

#08 Landscapes and public space
The development of landscape architecture made innovative contributions by opening up formal paths and constituting new models. It was developed both in private gardening, from the courtyard to the roof, as well as in public spaces. The idea of this section is to consider a wide geographical and chronological panorama and to investigate contributions to landscape design for creating comfortable environments, from the scale of the project to the detail of the elements.

Abstract (500 words), written in accordance with the guidelines (.docx) which are available for download here (Call for abstracts template). Abstracts must not include images.

Docomomo Korea 2014 – Call for papers

leave a comment

korea_modern

Hemos recibido el Call for papers para la próxima Conferencia Internacional de Docomomo, a realizarse en Seúl, Corea, entre el 24 y el 27 de septiembre de 2014.

A continuación el texto (en inglés) de la convocatoria.

Call for papers

The Modern Movement challenged a millennium of classical values through a collective global revolution in technological, social, political and aesthetic spatial values. The magnitude and complexity of this confrontation between epochs multiplied when Modernity’s western values expanded into the Asian sphere.
The diasporas of Modernity and the resultant local interpretations of the movement are well documented and known. Even the moniker “International Style” presumed a singularity on a global scale, only to be tweaked and usurped by regional modern architects who would integrate modern values with regional sensibilities. But it is important to remember these exchanges and re- calibrations took place on the shared stage of a singular western culture.
The 2014 International Conference re-measures this expansion of the Modern ethos within a wholly different context of Asia.  Instigated by a geo-political expansionist policy, these colonial expansions produced violent confrontations and challenged the very cultural and heritage foundation of Asia. As a result, the relevancy of the Modern Movement—not as a style but as a way of thinking, a harbinger of contemporary values—was tested and fortified.  Predictably, Modernity in Asia grew and matured through this process of conflict and expansion and intrinsically took on very distinct identities in different regions. To comprehend the variety of Asian Modernism, it is vital to map a comparative analysis of each country’s Modern roots and major achievements.
The theme of Expansion and Conflict fundamentally interrogates the values and relevancy of the Modern Movement through the extreme cultural lens of Asia.  By this interrogation, we hope to secure its aspirational role in any culture and society. We would declare that conflict is not necessarily a pejorative but maybe a challenge for the future. It signifies a vigorous recognition of each culture’s robust and intrinsic values—the existing culture and modernism’s raison d’être.  As Modern Movement is asked to earn a space of its own by clashing with the existing intrinsic order, it does so by forming a new value system. Through this process, it grows to become a regional phenomenon and eventually gains the momentum necessary to develop and expand on its own.
The 2014 Call for Paper is ultimately, about the resilience of Modern Movement.

• Presentation Paper Selection: Feb. 28, 2014

1. Education and Theory

The difference of philosophies between the east and the west bears fruit to an evolving discussion regarding theories of space, tectonics and meaning. The linearity of approaching the modern movement must evolve to a lateral system that permits multiple relationships with cultural issues in conflict with the existing pattern. The practical integration of this expansive architectural education should be discussed as a pedagogical structure for Asia and worldwide.
2. Urbanism and Landscape

Urban planning and landscape have experienced a turbulent yet dynamic evolution in modern Asia and elsewhere. While Europe can reclaim the palimpsest of an existing city pattern, Asia, Africa and South America are literally defined by either colonial foreign entities or the new mode of western urbanism. What emerged from this binary system of colonial and western urbanism is an unconventional relationship between program, infrastructure and landscape which produced dynamic new urban typologies.
3. Conservation and Re-Use

The rapidly changing city is the stage for repeated collisions between social and economic desires and historically-valued ideologies. It is within this context of conflict that the heritage of the modern movement must now expand. However, changing social and economic demands lead to frequent instances when the value of preserving and re-using modern building is not recognised. Conservation and re-use policy, legal action, public education, and awareness programs to sustain the exchange of opinion are therefore necessary.
4. Technology

The selection of buildings materials is traditionally depending on technology. However cultural implications and meaning are associated with the use of local and global, natural or industrial materials. Therefore, it is critical to understand expansion and conflict in terms of building construction. It is also critical to face modern technology from the contemporary point of view of rehabilitation and sustainability.
5. Asian Modernity

Is Modern Movement a western concept? Can one be Modern and non western? The definition of Asian Modern Movement begins with locating and defining the core values and ethos of modernity. These values aspire to be universal beyond local culture and geography. Therefore, one would contend if modernity has stopped being western-centric, and has become a universal set of values that can be appropriated by any region. Simultaneously, these values are mobilized and activated through specific vehicles of local history, culture and resources. Asian modernity would represent the most extreme and challenging of these cultural vehicles.
