INTBAU Cuba and INTBAU Scandinavia in partnership with the Academy of Urbanism (UK), C.E.U. Norway and C.E.U. Cuba invite you to the 2010 Havana Urban Design Charrette.
The 2010 International Charrette will build on our work from 2007, 2008 and 2009. International architects and planners are invited to join Cuban experts and local communities for a one-week charrette 22nd – 27th March 2010 to develop proposals for the regeneration and development of the Waterfront area of Old Havana, Casablanca, a small marine town across from Old Havana, and East Havana.
The charrette will fit both educational and professional purposes and will give participants an introduction to the history of Havana’s cultural heritage, through a close contact with its traditions, architecture and urbanism. The charrette seeks the participation of individuals who share a respectful attitude to new interventions in historical contexts, and value the creation of places where human beings can live, work and enjoy a contemporary city that respects and values tradition, order and urbanity, and honors the culture of cities.
