ECUMENÓPOLIS – el programa audiovisual del COAC

El lunes 18 de julio, de 19:00 a 20:00 tendrá lugar en COAC la proyección del documental MUMBAI DISCONNECTED de Frederik Jacobi & Camilla Nielsson, Dinamarca. Este documental trata el tema de la movilidad urbana en Mumbai, una de las ciudades más pobladas del planeta. En esta ocasión el documental es casi el aperitivo de la ponencia posterior. Ángel Lopez Rodriguez, director de los Servicios de Movilidad del Ayuntamiento de Barcelona nos expondrá la situación actual y los planes de futuro en relación a la movilidad en nuestra ciudad.

Mumbai es como una ciudad hinchada de esteroides y su crecimiento propulsivo ha colapsado la infraestructura de transporte existente. Los pasajeros arriesgan la vida y la integridad física para viajar en trenes atestados; las calles y las autopistas se encuentran permanentemente parados, y la polución atmosférica y acústica está por encima de cualquier límite. Mr. Das es el vice presidente de la agencia estatal de carreteras; su trabajo consiste al asegurar que los puentes y los pasos de las autopistas se terminan a tiempo y de acuerdo con los requisitos medio ambientales impuestos por el Banco Mundial pero la construcción de nuevas carreteras levantan cuestiones de clase y de estatus socioeconómico.

New webside of the Master of International Cooperation Sustainable Emergency Architecture

The official Master of International Cooperation: Sustainable Emergency Architecture is a unique degree that prepares architects to develop and rebuild communities affected by poverty, conflict and natural disasters. The program forms part of the Erasmus Mundus European Cooperation Program and is located in Barcelona at the International University of Catalonia.

This is our second year as an official master’s degree: International Cooperation Sustainable Emergency Architecture, an English-language program based in Barcelona at the ESARQ-UIC School of Architecture and part of the Erasmus Mundus European Program.

Though you can visit the official page of the program at the university website, we’ve launched this new blog as a more spontaneous, interactive and multipurpose space where in addition to providing all the course-related information, we aim to take the pulse of sustainable emergency architecture around the world. As we prepare architects to develop and rebuild communities affected by poverty, conflict and natural disasters, we will share their progress and at the same time, post news about other programs, architects, organizations, individuals and initiatives that are playing a vital role in improving life through the practice of architecture.

Bookmark our blog or subscribe to our feed to stay tuned for news of school lectures, student projects, special events, and related news about building and designing for good.
