SISU––LINE #3 is the journal of the Estonian Association of Interior Architects, focused on spatial research, discusses the feasibility of diffidence and hospitality and is based on “SISU symposium 2016: Welcome Stranger!”.
SISU–LINE Welcome Stranger! is a provocative call to action to step out of one’s comfort zone against the background of the European migration crisis, and, from the viewpoint of the spatial environment, to discuss who is a stranger and when does a stranger become one of our own. Migration is a burning issue in today’s world, and movement can be forced or the result of free will. And it reflects the altered behavioural patterns of people’s acclimation and adaptation in today’s real space. We speak about spatial intelligence or the relationship between place, architectural space and people, in which the ability to create new inspiring solutions in a different cultural space and landscape, political and climatic environment – to use space differently – is expressed. Everyone is left with the opportunity to choose between diffidence and hospitality.
