During a week a series of events will show how new generations of architects face the challenges of climate change, spatial justice, and urban sprawl with renewed sensibility.

Context awareness, empathy with humans and non-human beings, match with technical and compositional skills generating new ways of observation, interaction and cohabitation in our cities. A different attitude towards the soil, water bodies and atmosphere that sustain our lives on earth, moving out from extraction to restitution.

Including material from the exhibitions :The Ahrtal Studio, Zwischenstand der Zwischenstadt, and Re-imagining Belval, talks, workshop, and a closing conference.
