Towards a Humanising Urbanism – a talk by Dr Rasem Badran
The Academy of Urbanism was pleased to present a special talk by the award-winning Palestinian architect Dr Rasem Badran.
Drawing upon an extensive portfolio of hundreds of built projects across the Middle East, Dr Badran’s talk focused on the importance of an architecture that combines a place-specific environmental response with meeting the key social and cultural requirements of a building’s users. His approach concentrates on designing positive, distinctive buildings and places that stand in marked contrast to self-conscious, anywhere-architecture that is devoid of reference to people, place, or culture.
