INDE. Summit - Program Details

Manifesting Culture, Place & Identity In The Indo-pacific

The vernacular is often complementary to sustainable architecture and interior design. Yet in many cases these days, its manifestation tends toward the gestural. Opportunities for deeper relevance and benefit are overlooked. Similarly, sanitised and packaged versions of heritage, as well as dogmatic preservations of the past, each present their own limitations. Authentic understandings of what the vernacular has to offer the contemporary built environment can positively impact ideas of culture and how people live. This session will explore the lived experience – as opposed to the thin iconography – of culture, place and identity as manifested through a variety of project types in a spectrum of regional locations.

 

At the end of this panel, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify how particular cultural influences inform architecture within the various countries of the region
  • Understand how Heritage retention, integration and preservation is viewed and incorporated into projects throughout the Indo-Pacific region today by analysing the differences and what can be learned from the different models
  • Understand why some masterplans are more successful than others through specific projects
  • Discuss how the merging of cultures is influencing the architecture of tomorrow within the Indo-Pacific region, the pros and cons
