Should we prepare (for) an urban exodus?

Brændende hus i baggrunden og græskarbod i forgrunden
Joel Sternfeld, from American Prospects, 1978

Are cities and metropolises the manifest destiny of humankind ?

In his Copenhagen Landscape Lecture, Sébastien Marot will reflect on how the present environmental predicament might well lead us to question this idea, and to encourage something like an urban exodus.

Sébastien Marot is a professor in environmental history at the ENSAVT Université Paris-Est and a guest professor at the EPF Lausanne. He is the author of several books including "Taking the Country’s Side: Agriculture and Architecture", Poligrafa, Barcelone 2019.

An informal reception will be held after the lecture and discussion.

The lecture takes place during the Copenhagen Architecture Festival (CAFx) and is part of a newly established collaboration between CLL and Institut français du Danemark.
