EAAE Annual Conference and General Assembly, in Prague 25.08.- 27.08.2021 (hybrid) – Minutes online
We feel we are at the start of new dimensions of our profession. The increase in scale and the overlapping of disciplines in the ﬁelds of architecture – urbanism – landscape architecture in current practice needs to be reﬂected in current education. We invite you to join the EAAE Annual Conference entitled New Dimensions, which will take place in Prague from 25.08.- 27.08.2021.
The traces of cultural and non-cultural human activity on landscapes and cities have increasingly impressed themselves on the face of the Earth. The consequences of the past 150 years are serious, and have brought us to the start of a new era. Nature and the landscape – not only the built environment – are becoming the object of a consciously planned and regulated landscape-creation, with a balanced proportion of use, care and protection. In Europe, a wilderness is not, and never can be, a true wilderness, but “only” a deliberately planned unregulated area whose extent and regulation level have been the subject of social agreement. All of Europe is becoming a regulated and consciously shaped territory. The increasing value of carefully planned landscape and built environment will require an increasing number of experts trained to tackle these large scale hybrid tasks and projects.
With the growing capacity and intensity of our possibilities to change the world, there is an increase in the scale of our interventions and influences on the environment, accompanied by the almost limitless communication connectivity of society in the physical and virtual spheres. The Earth has grown, in relative terms, smaller- yet in contrast, the problems associated with it are growing larger. Globalisation provides a global extent and format for problems on the macro and micro scales, such as global warming, water management, sustainable development of cities and landscapes, the “development” of transportation, migration and assimilation, etc., in an ever more troubling and unignorable form. This increase in scale and the overlapping of disciplines in the fields of architecture – urbanism – landscape architecture in current practice needs to be reflected in current education. This is the “new dimension of our profession”.
The conference is organized by the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University in Prague. We look forward to offering you a personal welcome in Prague. In addition to the specialized program, we also planned tours of Prague with expert commentary and a day trip to Brno. The day trip consists of a visit to Villa Tugendhat and the renowned Sonberk winery, which combines excellent architecture with great wine.
