THE FUTURE OF TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE AND URBANISM

A JOINT INTBAU AND TAG EVENT, FEBRUARY 9TH 2011

   

.

50 architects, urban designers and others attended a special conference in February at the Art Worker’s Guild in Queen Square in London as guests and members of the International Network for Traditional Building Architecture and Urbanism (INTBAU) and the Traditional Architecture Group (TAG), a linked society of  RIBA, to discuss the future of architecture and urban design.  Following presentations from chapters of INTBAU and others from 12 different countries, the group discussed the issues, problems and opportunities facing architects and urban designers today.  The meeting concluded with the drafting of six progressive principles, finalised in March, that should be adopted by all architects and urban designers to maintain a creative diversity, serve communities and advance the quality of life. These became known as the QUEEN SQUARE STATEMENT
