design + culture + education + action
a platform for strategic thinking making and living better city
co+re is the result of twenty years of immersion into, and explorations of cultural otherness, its expressions and capacities in urban and architectural design in Asia, Australia + Europe.
co+re platform is a collaborative enterprise founded by Darko Radović+Davisi Boontharm, professors, architects, urbanists, educators, researchers and thinkers in the fields of architecture and urban design, who have combined their passion for cities and cross-cultural communication to create this meeting point for borderless exchange, education, research + action.
co+re conceptualises, initiates, organises and, as a hub, (co)hosts diverse cultural, academic and educational activities, which include workshops, symposia, seminars, exhibitions, cultural exchange and travel programmes
co is as the co in
context, collaboration, connection, commune, community, communication, company, conception ...
re is as the re in
research, representation, rethinking, reuse, requalification, recovery, rediscovering, rebuilding, remaking ...
sign + is at the core of our co+re project
co+re seeks "the dignity of bearing the + sign, that of joy,
happiness, enjoyment, of sensuality - the sign of life” *
and to it we only add another, all-important nuance, red colour, the colour of life.
