Tiistai 9.11.2018, kello 14.30, Arsenale Teatro alle Tese, La Biennale di Venezia Emebedded Architectures: Challenging the Architecture – Nature Divide
Humankind is actively shaping the world today. The geological impact of human activity is so pronounced it has changed the behavior of our planet. This is the epoch of the Anthropocene. Though the Anthropocene may appear to mark the moment humans have come to overpower nature, it is also an opportunity to rethink the most basic relationship between our buildings and ecology. Architecture should be considered a tool for redefining the complete cycle of building, from its most basic components to its operating systems.
The Nordic Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia
explores the relationship between nature and the built environment. Curated by architect Eero Lundén
the exhibition, Another Generosity
, forms an unique architectural experience. As an extension of the exhibition the Nordic pavilion is hosting a series of dialogues on architecture and nature.
The keynote lecture by prof. Michael U. Hensel
, Embedded Architectures: Challenging the Architecture – Nature Divide
, sets the theoretical framework for what one might call embedded architectures. It presents different strands of research and research by design that are part of a larger effort to challenge the architecture – nature divide. Programme
