Balancing the Territory: seminars

Seminars in the context of the Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism

The seminars in the series ‘Living Together: Territory, Community, Resources’ offer a space for reflection in which professionals in architecture and urbanism come together with experts, researchers and activists from different fields to share experiences and engage in a dialogue with the audience.

How can we strike an optimum balances between the more and less densely inhabited areas of the territory? In this seminar, we will share experiences and proposals for revitalising the most uninhabited areas of our geography. Participants in the conversation will include researchers in agroecology, activists and rural business owners, along with professionals, theoreticians and experts in the fields of architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture. Taking on a multi-faceted perspective, we will analyse the shortcomings that need to be addressed and we will suggest strategies for promoting and facilitating the repopulation of rural areas.
