3th. International Alfa ADU2020 conference
new challenges for Architecture, Design and Urbanism for updating, modernising and synchronizing the university curricula
3-6 June 2014, Ghent, Belgium.
The third ALFA ADU2020 conference will be held in 2014 in Ghent in the KU Leuven, Faculty of architecture, campus Sint-Lucas Ghent.
The conference will focus on creative adjacencies: unexpected phenomena of emergent liaisons, on urban contrasts and conflicts, on unusual professional collaborations or creative joined forces as the generator of new possibilities, new strategies in a dynamic contemporary environment.

Conference themes will engage in different and divers approaches in the new curricula-develoment of Architecture, Design and Urbanism. The sessions will address a range of research, design and educational reflections and strategies on creative solutions for complex situations.
Submission abstracts (500 words) can be done online until the 1st of February 2014
