REVOLUTION? ARCHITECTURE AND THE ANTHROPOCENE: SUSANNAH HAGAN
Link to the event: we-need-to-talk.fieldstations.net
“Architects are trained to think ahead (for what is design but future intention?), so how is it that they have failed for fifty years to respond in any meaningful numbers to the environmental abuse that now threatens both culture and nature? That’s why there is a question mark after Revolution: even now, it’s not clear that we
can engage deeply or quickly enough in the root and branch change needed to switch direction from damage to repair. If we can’t, then another kind of revolution, entirely out of our control, will prevail instead”.
The book “Revolution? Architecture and the Anthropocene”, has been published 2022 by Lund Humphries Publishers.
SUSANNAH HAGAN is Emeritus Professor of Architecture at the University of Westminster, London.
The event takes place in cooperation with the Department of Architectural Theory of the TU Berlin and it is curated by Lidia Gasperoni with the participation of Till Zihlmann.
