HOUSED by CHOICE HOUSED by FORCE
Homes, Conflicts and Conflicting Interests
Interdisciplinary – International Conference.
Part of the Housing-Critical Futures Program
City: Nicosia. Country: Cyprus. Dates: January 21–22. 2016
Organised by the University of Cyprus / The Cyprus Institute
Taking as its starting point the social, political, cultural and economic complexity of its host city, this conference seeks to understand the range of conflicting interests and factors that shape the housing of our towns and cities in both normal and extreme scenarios. It is interested in international cases from politically charged environments of military conflict zones to the socially conflictive contexts of developer led gentrification; from local resident initiatives to globally applicable design ideas.
Howayda Harithy. Lebanon. Professor of Architecture at the American University of Beirut.
David Waterhouse. UK . Head of Strategic Planning. CABE (Commission of Architecture and the Built Environment)
