Anthropocene Teaching Practices in Architecture
Marlies Vermeulen questions the role of “place in the everyday”. What is the role that “the everyday” gets in existing spatial notation systems – such as, for example, the architectural floor plan? The cartopological map acts as a research instrument to explore and document “place” and “the everyday” during the fieldwork and guide the intensive participant-observations.

Anthropocene Teaching Practices in Architecture

The Anthropocene has in recent years become a field of reflexive intersection in which human activity and practices are being renegotiated. Architecture is one of the material fields that has a radical impact on the environment. This should lead the discipline to a radical rethinking not only with respect to its forms and materials but to the way it defines its pedagogical tasks. The workshop is an invitation to reflect together on the pedagogical capacities of architecture in practices of reflexivity, design, and building.

The event is curated by Lidia Gasperoni. The workshop, in cooperation with Fieldstations and the Chair of Architectural Theory (TU Berlin), is part of the DAZ series “We need to talk!”.
