Architects Without Frontiers: War, Reconstruction and Design Responsibility (repost)

Architects Without Frontiers: War, Reconstruction and Design Responsibility by Esther Charlesworth
English | ISBN: 0750668407 | edition 2006 | PDF | 224 pages | 7,4 mb

Through selected case studies, Charlesworth examines the role of architects, planners, urban designers and landscape architects in three cities following conflict - Beirut, Nicosia and Mostar - three cities where the mental and physical scars of violent conflict still remain. This book expands the traditional role of the architect from 'hero' to 'peacemaker' and discusses how design educators can stretch their wings to encompass the proliferating agendas and sites of civil unrest.
