Homelessness is on the rise. Planning often works to marginalize people experiencing homelessness through hostile design, event-driven tactical urbanism, or displacement to the industrial periphery. But what about the positive contribution that design can make in creating a more inclusive city? How can partners and professionals work towards this goal? These are the questions that ASFQ invites you to explore during this conference. Architecture + itinérance.

This colloquium creates a space for discussion on the impacts of planning that may or may not promote the inclusion/exclusion of people experiencing homelessness. Entitled “Conversations for an Inclusive City”, the event is an interdisciplinary meeting between researchers, architecture and design professionals, municipal actors and the intervention community. To this end, it will address a series of cross-cutting themes, including cohabitation in the city, the notion of home, and collaborative and inclusive planning approaches. The conference will also be the occasion to launch a brand new catalog of local and international best practices in architecture and homelessness.
