HRC Day 2023

Habitat Research Center Day 2023

27th November 2023
Venue:   EPFL
14:00 to 18:00


We come back to you to invite you to our yearly Habitat Research Center Day.

This year’s HRC day will take place in twofold: first, to discuss HRC’s ongoing initiatives, both within ENAC and beyond, with some of our international network partners; second, proposing to reflect together on how to enhance or bring forward new opportunities for future initiatives, particularly by engaging in conversation with some of the new ENAC laboratories.

The HRC Day will question methodsurban challenges, and research agendas throughout the day and identify priorities, opportunities, and possible answers for Urbanization in Transition. The goal is to debate the HRC research fields, and more broadly the role and the possible impact of research, through designteaching, and mediation, in the transformation of territorial logics, urban rhythms, landscape qualities, environmental services or architectural culture.

Within the program, a promising roundtable will gather international research centers focusing on the urban to debate their role, especially in the current context of simultaneous crises. As part of these challenges, the climate emergency immediately requires joint efforts and great imagination.
