Résumé

We wish to deepen discussions and researches around the topic of architecture in emergencies situations, on which we started working with Boundaries' issue n. 2. Even if they are considered as special events – something rarely happening – emergencies are, in many cases, an everyday reality around the globe : from natural to man-made disasters, architecture must face a broad variety of emergency circumstances. Can we speak about “architecture” at a given historical moment or in certain geographic areas?

Argument

We wish to deepen discussions and researches around the topic of architecture in emergencies situations, on which we started working with Boundaries' issue n. 2.
Even if they are considered as special events – something rarely happening – emergencies are, in many cases, an everyday reality around the globe : from natural to man-made disasters, architecture must face a broad variety of emergency circumstances.

Can we speak about “architecture” at a given historical moment or in certain geographic areas?
Which is the role and the status of architecture during the disaster – shelter, appropriation for other uses –, and after the emergency – in the reconstruction of the city or a part of it, in the reorganization of the community for the future in the short and long term? How do architects react to situations like: destruction – physical and/or of the memory –, presence of ruins, restoration and reconstruction, and how does all that interacts with human perception of the environment?

Contributions on any aspect of these topics, on which we wish to open a wide interdisciplinary debate, are encouraged. All kinds of approaches to this topic are welcomed, and papers can be case studies oriented, or methodological and/or theoretical in focus.
