Stream 03: Inhabiting The Anthropocene
This instalment addresses the phenomenon of accelerated urbanism that has arisen from globalisation, and its implications for future architecture and urbanism. Internationally renowned academics, artists, scientists and theorists offer perspectives through interviews, essays and portfolios from a variety of fields and creative practices. From Neri Oxman’s material ecology and an examination of typological urban transitions by John E. Fernández, to Dan Mullen’s views on the reactivation of Detroit, Christian de Portzamparc’s thoughts on despatialisation, and naturalising architecture according to Marie-Ange Brayer, practically every thinkable topic is covered in challenging detail.
