The symposium

The International Symposium on Temporal Design, held every two years, is an international forum
for researchers interested in the Temporal Design Theory. It aims at going beyond the traditional
design concepts, primarily concerned with issues of spatial design only, taking into account the
temporal dimension of life too. This brings to a better blending of natural activities and human
rhythms. To achieve "temporal design" one must approach design problems with knowledge of the
"temporal dynamism" of the interactions between human creativity and its effects on the natural
environment, and between human activities and built and natural environment. In particular, cultural
development may favour a lifestyle pattern that does not attempt to go against the forces of nature.
It is invaluable the contribution that this approach can give to architecture, engineering, pedagogy,
psychology, and many other disciplines.
