Summary

The panel will explore spatial configurations created in these contexts, questioning the forms of modernity expressed by architectural and urban projects. With the purpose of challenging a general assumption according to which Asian and especially Southeast Asian urban landscapes affected by recent developments tend toward irremediable standardization and “Westernization”, the panel will explore local expressions of modernity through the examination of projects pointing to a reinterpretation of forms of local heritages.

Presentation

Internationalization introduces new agents, models, vocabulary and conceptual tools that shape urban development in Southeast Asian cities. The panel will explore spatial configurations created in these contexts, questioning the forms of modernity expressed by architectural and urban projects. With the purpose of challenging a general assumption according to which Asian and especially Southeast Asian urban landscapes affected by recent developments tend toward irremediable standardization and “Westernization”, the panel will explore local expressions of modernity through the examination of projects pointing to a reinterpretation of forms of local heritages. .

Papers analysing expressions of modernity through the renewal of inherited forms in architectural and urban design are invited to participate in this panel. Special attention will be paid to projects that integrate spatial remains, are inspired by inherited forms, models and practices, or are founded on the representation and reinterpretation of local heritages transposed into new types and models.
