Rebuilding of the built environment is severely needed in societies facing conflict or natural disasters, be they immediate disasters and devastation, or ongoing irreversible climate change. These built environments are no longer able to protect, support or strengthen their communities and must be rebuilt.
Can the rebuilding of communities be done in a way that is holistically sustainable, accessible, collaborative, locally anchored and even beautiful?
At the World Congress exhibition in Bella Center, the Rebuilding Pavilion will set out to investigate, discuss and test holistically sustainable rebuilding – and you can join the conversation in a series of keynotes, discussions, an exhibition and workshops.
KEYNOTE: REHABILITATION OF CLIMATE MIGRANTS BY MAXIMISING THE POVERTY POTENTIAL
Wednesday July 5 – 8:30 AM
World renowned architect and humanitarian Yasmeen Lari shares examples from her practice and showcases instances of self-build by poor communities to attain self-sufficiency in flood resilient housing, hunger reduction and flood mitigation measures.
It will be Ms. Lari’s first public appearance in Denmark. The session is part of the series Realdania Talks funded by the philanthropic association Realdania.
OTHER TALKS ON THE PROGRAMME:
Rebuilding for hope when hope is under attack
Monday JULY 3 – 13.45-15.15
In this session, we discuss ways in which architecture can strengthen the identity and culture of communities damaged by disasters and/or ongoing conflict. How urban planning and development can support cohesiveness in areas of conflict. How traditions, building practices, cultural heritage, monuments and local crafts can be tools for reclaiming ownership of one’s community. How architecture can help provide a sense of home for the displaced or/and despaired – and perhaps even contribute to peace? With Marwa Al-Sabouni, Lazare Eloundou Assomo, Viktoriia Didych, Iñaqui Carnicero & Alonso-Colmenares.
Rebuilding quality of life within the planetary boundaries
Wednesday July 5 – 15:15-16:30
With climate change, the epidemic of lifestyle diseases, and rural areas being challenged by emigration of people and resources, the western world is slowly realizing that the stability and privileges it has come to expect are no longer guaranteed. Meanwhile, in the global south, climate change already hits harder, extenuating extreme floods and droughts and increasing well-known challenges of inequality, displacement, and poverty. With Farrokh Derakhshani, Marina Tabassum, Bhawna Jaimini & Søren Nielsen.
THE REBUILDING PAVILION
You’ll find the Rebuilding Pavilion in the Bella Center Hall E. This is the physical test of sustainable rebuilding, developed, designed and programmed by a team of international profiles, each in their own way and local context working with rebuilding.
The pavilion is made using only waste material, bio materials that are locally in abundance, upcycled and reused products and a lot of care, compassion and collaborative efforts. It houses an international exhibition of different examples of rebuilt architecture, that support sustainable development, and a beautiful courtyard, where you can join engaging workshops, good conversations, meet new friends or maybe just find a nice, calm spot to take in the impressions of the congress. The programme happening at the pavilion will be on Realdania’s partner site in thecan be found in the app.
