ECOWEEK 2012 - Rome 24-30 September 2012

ECOWEEK 2012 : Urban FOOTPRINT + Affordable COMMUNITIES + Green DESIGN
International Conference & Workshops for Architecture & Design for Young Architects, Designers, Landscape Architects and graduate students

Keynote speaker: KENGO KUMA, Architect, Japan

In Rome, for the second time in Italy, ECOWEEK brings together the best among ecologically minded-architects, designers, landscape architects, young professionals, and graduate students, in a week of creative thinking 'out of the box', cooperation, dialogue, intercultural exchange, networking, hard work and lots of fun!
ECOWEEK 2012 is a great opportunity for young professionals to share ideas about 'green' buildings and 'green' urban planning, to hear and meet other professionals, some of whom are the best architects in the field, to learn from the experts in the field, to train and gain experience in how to think, plan and design 'green' within existing cities and communities.
The ECOWEEK workshops aim to address REAL issues, in REAL sites, aiming to give the opportunity to young professinals to get a 'taste of the real world' and how 'green' Design and Ecological Buildings can make a difference in the city, in the neighborhoods, and in the communities.

Don't miss it!

What's new in ECOWEEK 2012 in Rome?

  • This is the first ECOWEEK in Rome! Rome, one of the most architecturally significant cities in the world, is the host of ECOWEEK 2012. We hope to see you all come back for a taste of history, architectural spendor, networking, 'green' design brainstorming, and for an intensive and fun week in Rome!
  • In cooperation with a number of local and international partners, ECOWEEK workshops are aiming to address REAL issues in REAL sites within Rome. The workshop themes will evolve around two main themes: (a) Tiber as the water axis in the city, as a potential platform for design solutions for pedestrian and bicycle routes, as an axis for sustainable transportation in the city, perhaps as an axis for temporary housing (floating?), as an axis for green open space within the city, and as an axis to connect historic and community spaces. (b) Low income communities, such as the Tor Bella Monaca neighborhood, as a platform for community regeneration, new uses, public and private space, social housing, and the preservation and sustainable regeneration of the urban and social fabric.
  • The ECOWEEK GREENHOUSE, the new initiative for innovation, social and environmental entrepreneurship, which is already active in Greece and Israel, is scheduled to also start its first project in Italy.
