In the next phase, the project partners will begin work on the content of the digital platform, including video lectures and resources.
And in more than one sense, ARCH4CHANGE draws on collaboration as a means to achieve more than would otherwise be possible: For one thing, the universities together can provide much more detailed knowledge, and for another, the choice of an open platform means that everyone will be able to update and develop it once it is launched.
”The international collaboration is essential. For example, Bologna have specific knowledge on earthquake design that we don’t have in Scandinavia for obvious reasons. And we tend to know a lot about social issues in architecture like welfare and co-living concepts. Dublin, for their part, can focus on passive design. So, together we just cover more ground, making the platform that much more applicable globally in the end”, says associate professor Urszula Kozminska at The Aarhus School of Architecture.
