Pour le Copenhagen Architecture Festival et BARLETI University, des étudiants et professionnels se réunissent pour filmer chacun leur propre documentaire dans la capitale albanaise. Le projet "Leave No One Behind" explore de nouvelles méthodes de conception non discriminatoire et inclusive de l'espace public et bâti. Avec l'atelier "Provocative Micro-Interventions", FCFa a apporté son expertise dans les rues de Tirana. La session sert d'inspiration pour les films que les étudiants réaliseront au cours de la semaine de l’atelier.
Background: The Leave No One Behind agenda (LNOB) is the central, transforming promise in the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It represents the unequivocal commitment of all UN Member States to eradicate poverty in all its forms, end discrimination and exclusion, and reduce the inequalities and vulnerabilities that undermine the potential of humans and other living beings.
Discrimination persists in the design of the built and planned environment, indoors, outdoors, public and private. This includes discrimination against socially, physically or mentally vulnerable or challenged groups based on gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, limited mobility or income.
Much of the action taken to contrast discrimination happens on a small urban scale, through simple designs that are mindful of the needs of all users, human and non-human, and help combat the discrimination of minority communities and of more vulnerable individuals. Which spaces allow marginalized groups to feel included in urban life? Which inventive designs allow underprivileged individuals to survive the injustices of the city? Which architectural interventions make the city more safe, healthy and liveable for all?
This workshop aims at developing short films documenting solutions to spatial discrimination, creating an understanding of the diversity of the reality in which the LNOB agenda must be resolved, and generating new knowledge and insight about sustainable and inclusive public spaces, residential areas, buildings, building materials, infrastructures, and other urban practices that promote the fight against inequality.
