INTRODUCTION
What is Community Architecture?

• Study of communities, the forces that cohere them, and that pull them
apart. Its purpose is to understand the changing nature of communities, in
their historical and cultural contexts, and the value of communities in
sustaining and enhancing our quality of life.
• Its vision is to mobilize the potential for increasingly inter-connected,
culturally diverse, communities to enhance participation, prosperity,
sustainability, health & well-being by better connecting research,
stakeholders and communities.
HUMANITIES RESEARCH INTO URBAN
AND RURAL ENVIRONMENTS
DESIGN
• The core practice of architecture is the design of spaces for inhabitation.
This includes the design of buildings, the spaces between buildings, spaces
without buildings, conglomerations of buildings, parts of buildings
(inglenooks, details, the parts of buildings we touch, the parts we never
touch), and other aspects of the built environment.
• Architecture has the capacity to imagine new forms of living, new patterns
of occupation of the surface of the earth, new spatial and aesthetic and
social relations. It is a concrete form of the imaginary.

CREATING A HUMAN SCALE THROUGH
PLACEMAKING

• The main obstacle to developing at a human scale are municipal


departments and the real estate developers who exercise an undue
influence on those government officials.

• Planning departments look to make city-wide changes in zoning instead of


neighborhood specific ones, resulting in controversies

also in the contemporary principles used in designing communities.

elements of principles, typologies and functions, users-public, community

spaces for clearly defined spaces but also spaces
with polyvalent features.

contemporary community that integrates an array of
spaces with specific functional destinations, flexible,
adaptable, and non-finite spaces .
