Re:EASA is a reconsidseration of our lifestyle and profession and reinvention of easa itself and the context in which it takes place.
Re:EASA explores the relations and implementations of the Re-concepts through various levels, stages and contexts. It deals with intellectual process as basis for further actions. It looks closer, into personal and collective behaviour and our awareness as space shapers and generators. It deals with the perception of materials and space, understanding of the actions of future-shaping vs. past-patching, as well as the end-goals with their socio-economical and spatial relevance.
Re:EASA understands waste in its broadest sense: wasted spaces, resources, time and information; and uses it as a tool.
Re:EASA will refresh the existing workshops’ concepts. We believe all architecture is inherently site-specific and must be useful to the community. Therefore, we will decide on the most workshops’ subjects and/or locations beforehand, all the while collaborating with the local government and community.
Restructuring the whole process from setting the task to picking and executing the workshops will ultimately deal with the issue of integrating the theoretical discourse into the construction process, moreover, being its core. For each aching space, proposed as the workshops focus, tutors will be given a chance to react to it with whatever means and tools they find convenient, emphasizing the awareness, high understanding of the context and a relation to our overall theme. The end-format of the workshops will be the result of the interaction of all the actors: the space itself, tutors, locals, organizers, our relations, emotions and visions. By doing so, we will ensure that the results of re:EASA are long-lasting and ultimately put to good use.
Re:EASA will put an emphasize on its communal life with one’s creativity, involvement and responsibility in its core. All that we learn and create is to be passed on. re:EASA is to be a platform for the social experiments and a springboard through which the reconsidered models of (community) living could be spread beyond our community.
