Can architecture establish and perpetuate peace? Does it have anything to offer on that level? Often architecture has been accused of causing tension, social unrest and even segregation. To be accused of such effects it must be powerful. So let’s explore this strength in a pragmatic positive direction: architecture’s contribution to post-conflict reconstruction. For the presentation of Volume 26: Architecture of Peace a debate on two themes will be held at Spui 25, Amsterdam:

  • Is an ethical code for architects needed and if so, what should it look like?
  • What is the relation between ethics and esthetics?

Presentations by Rory Hyde and Arjen Oosterman.
Door open: 12:15 w/ sandwiches.
Debate: 12:45—14:00.
