Welcome to the Sustainable Spaces, Sustainable Meanings seminar!
1st February 2023 - Olohuone (Pinni B1029-30, Tampere University)
The sustainable development and management of anthropic spaces is at the hearth of many of the challenges of our time, ranging from climate neutrality to inclusivity and biodiversity. To tackle it means to deal both with the practical use value of spaces and spatial organization, and with their ideological symbolic value. The question of the meaning that is constructed and articulated in the built environment, be it individual or collective, digital or analogue, becomes central. In this seminar, we propose a dialogue between architecture, semiotics and game studies to engage with the relationships between meaning and sustainability in anthropic environments from different perspectives.
The seminar will be articulated around one keynote presentation by Prof. Sung Do Kim, and presentations by Daniel Fernández Galeote, Janset Shawash & Narmeen Marji.
Participation is free and open to all. Join us on site or on Zoom via https://t.ly/P0END
