Architecture in the Ecological Crisis

Public lecture by Feifei Zhou, Associate Lecturer, University of the Arts London

Wednesday 18 May 2022 16:30-18:00, Rolighedsvej 23, Frederiksberg C, Auditorium Landskab

We have constantly been changing the landscape around us. We turn nature into an asset, and alienate the most commercially valuable resource from its ecosystem. Our concentration of wealth was created through making both the human and nonhuman into resources for investment. When nature becomes an asset, everything else becomes waste.

The lecture will discuss interrogation of man-made disturbances to the ecological environment from movement of goods in our increasingly globalized economy. The conventional methods of mapping need to be experimented and challenged in the spatial research of Anthropocene from a more than human perspective. In era of Anthropocene, the undesigned, unexpected and out of control effects of infrastructure projects has been creating and spreading to the ecological world. These effects are neither negative nor positive, they are all around us. The question is, however, if human disturbance must exist, what kind of disturbance can we all live with?
