Initiated by Fondation Braillard Architectes, Geneva, and Habitat Research Center, EPFL, the Bernardo Secchi Working Seminars (JBS) began in 2015. An international, interdisciplinary forum, it addresses key urban and regional issues for ecological transition amid the climate crisis. Dedicated to the late planner Bernardo Secchi (1934-2014), Professor at the Schools of Architecture in Geneva and Venice, the seminar honours his legacy. As an internationally acclaimed urbanist, Secchi consistently advocated for a critical understanding and innovative action, shaping the just and optimal development of the urban realm through his writings and projects.
