Voor het Copenhagen Architecture Festival samen met BARLETI University, kwamen studenten en professionals samen om een korte documentaire te filmen in de hoofdstad van Albanië. 'Leave No One Behind' onderzoekt nieuwe methodes voor niet-discriminerend, inclusief ontwerp van de publieke en gebouwde ruimte. Met de workshop 'Provocative Micro-Interventions' bracht FCFa haar expertise rond publieke ruimte naar de straten van Tirana. De sessie dient als inspiratie voor de films die de studenten in de workshopweek maken.
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.
