zawia volume00: CHANGE
Zawia#00:Change discusses the significantly changing realities imposed on all social, political and economic systems and their influence on design disciplines. The complex global situation and continuous fluctuations within these systems demand a new understanding and repositioning of the field. The contributions aim to respond to issues such as the failing economic and political systems worldwide, growing discontent with capitalism, unemployment, social injustice, and social media empowerment, if the discipline is to remain relevant and involved in the remaking of these structures. Zawia#00:Change will attempt to demonstrate whether architects are ready to embrace changing ideals and new modes of operation, and whether they are willing to help better people’s lives rather than focusing on glorifying design or architecture.
