2A Magazine Issue 45, Spring 2020 Theme: DISPLACEMENT AND ARCHITECTURE SYMPOSIUM
The Spring Edition, 2020 of 2A Architecture & Art Magazine will feature the proceedings of the 2018 “Displacement and Architecture Symposium”
sponsored by the Forum for Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality; the School of Architecture, University of Miami; the Coral Gables Museum; the AIA Miami; the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, and the Media Partner was 2A Architecture & Art Magazine. The aim of the conference and exhibition was for a broad discussion among practitioners and scholars on the tangible and intangible dimensions of displacement, addressing the physical as well as spiritual ramifications of natural disaster, forced migration, or deportation. Topics included how architecture, cities and environments are impacted by migration, including the spatial and symbolic dimensions of home, camp, or place of worship. The symposium focused on resilient design mitigation strategies addressing our inner sense of spiritual and cultural permanence within the temporal realities that we now occupy and will occupy in the future.
