Abstract


Interplay of Cultures is an exhibition raising concern about the current state of the world. Our living environment is being altered irreversibly by globalization, climate change and urbanization. As the challenges we face are global, a cross-disciplinary approach is needed in order to tackle them, merging fields such as architecture, design and technology. Thoughtful planning of cities can play a key role in preventing and alleviating many problems. This exhibition aims to spur dialogue about a topical theme that concerns all of us.

Interplay of Cultures marks the 25th anniversary of education dealing with sustainable development and humanitarian issues at University's Department of architecture. It revisits students’ past projects and their journeys into new cultures. The exhibition also looks at the changing professional identity of architects, highlighting the need for students to evolve into experts with a well-developed sense of global responsibility.
