Re-thinking Tourism 01

Symposium ‚Re-thinking Tourism 01‘

October 16th 2014, 15.00 – 19.00

TU Vienna, HS 18 Czuber



In the winter term 2014 / 15 the Department of Building Theory and Design at the Institute of Architecture and Design is going to search for possibilities of a new interpretation of selected issues within the dynamics of tourism.

The symposium will open up a theme of tourism as continuously growing reality that reshapes our everyday life. A wide range of topics should be discussing the current environmental, social and economic downsides of conventional tourism, challenging the definition of tourism and ultimately searching for a diverse set of specific bottom-up or even participative alternatives.

In the context of the symposium six lecturers will talk about their theoretical or practical engagement with the key issue and discuss their positions.
