Volume magazine is hosting a conference this coming May about what they call “the Architecture of Peace.” Part of this will be assembling “an inventory of inspiring projects for (post-)conflict territories”—and they’re hoping that you will get involved.
Are you an architect, designer, urbanist or community leader? Have you developed a project that aids to channel social relationships in a more peaceful way? Then get in touch with Volume. Send a short description to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “AoP projects call,” and we will endeavour to include it in our conference material, providing a unique overview of projects of this kind.
From post-military landscape remediation projects to transborder community exchange programs, from conflict gardens to films, from anti-gang territorial initiatives to bunker recycling services, from museums of slave history to a cartography of divided cities, I would imagine there is a huge range of ideas and examples out there to explore.
