"LivenARCH-VI 2019: REPLACING ARCHITECTURE" will be held in Trabzon on 25-28 September hosted by Karadeniz Technical University, Faculty of Architecture-Department of Architecture.

The conference organisers aim to bring together researchers from around the world to share their experience in Architecture.

The settlement and accommodation problems brought about by the increase in world population had always been major issues; architecture was expected to develop solutions for.


The rising population and other problems our habitats had been suffering, led to immigration whereby architecture also had its share of unfortunate consequences.


Today’s world is more and more being characterized by a never-ceasing movement of people due to the developments in technology, reduced primacy of labor in production processes, crises suffered in agriculture, industry and economics, not to mention a host of conditions ranging from survival issues to a search for a better life, including but not limited to wars, hunger, terror, and unemployment.


Population movements towards various destinations have been accelerating in recent decades in particular, in connection with a number of reasons and motives.


And that every movement whereby people leave their existing habitats and communities behind, and seek a new life often out of necessity, at a new place and in a new community, leads to a host of issues requiring solutions, for both the departure and the destination locations. 


The solutions to social, cultural, and economic problems such as integration, adaptation, belonging and quality require unconventional analyses, research, and design, and are duly reflected at the architectural scale.


Therefore, “Replacing Architecture” effectively paves the way for the existence and the forms of existence, not to mention the struggles to exist on part of the places, times, and spaces, with reference to all explicit and implicit aspects of the concept.


“Replacing Architecture” entailing the movements from origins to new destinations, provides an actual domain of research and application based on distinct perspectives to and pursuits of solution for the concepts of human, value, culture, movement, immigration, and transitivity.


In this context, LivenARCH-VI Congress aims to shed light on the “Replacing Architecture” theme on theoretical as well as practical planes, and calls for discussions on the following matters with an architectural and interdisciplinary outlook:
