WHAT’S THE FUTURE OF HUMANITARIAN DESIGN?

Join us for the presentation of “The Future of Humanitarian Design” (HUD), a four-year research project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). HUD explores how architecture, technology, and political science can address the increasing challenges in humanitarian action. As humanitarian crises worsen, HUD combines diverse disciplines to co-design sociopolitical and architectural innovations for improved humanitarian practice. The project integrates high-level experts from organizations like Médecins sans Frontières, Terre des hommes, and the International Committee of the Red Cross. Join our critical-pragmatic debate with guests from the Interior Architecture Department at HEAD – Genève, the University of Copenhagen, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Museum of the Red Cross, and the Geneva Graduate Institute.
