“Non puo esserci progresso senza affrontare l’ignoto”
Zaha Hadid (1950-2016)
The research units CIAUD (FA - UL) and CHAM (FCSH-UNL-UAç) in a joint organization with Architectural and Urban Design - Polytechnic University of Bari (Poliba) invite researchers from different scientific areas and cultures to gather in Bari, October 4th to 7th 2017, for the International and Multidisciplinary Congress PHI 2017 – “PROGRESS(ES) - THEORIES AND PRACTICES”. The organizers propose that the papers should focus on Architecture/Engineering, Arts and Humanities and Natural Sciences. Papers should take into account how Progress, through its theories and practices, affect(ed) societies in both its individual and collective spheres, either by improving, harming or even placing these two spheres in conflict. Participants may propose different scientific areas that will be taken under consideration by the Scientific Committee, in accordance with the principles afore-mentioned.
Functioning in straight alliance with the Congress PHI 2017, there will take place a Workshop for students, October 2nd to October 7th 2017, with the participation of some invited Congress members, who will coordinate the students’ work, on the same thematic as those chosen for the Congress. All information on the Workshop will be available at the Polytechnic of Bari (Poliba).
