The Building as Being discusses new ways of urban design strategies. Part 3 is on matter.

Over dit evenement

Research fellow Esmee Geerken and Waag invite you to the Art-Science Symposium series Building as Being. The Symposium discusses new ways of urban design strategies. For this end, Geerkens invites thinkers coming from a biological, material and sociological background. What could architects for example learn from the way in which minerals build structures?

The Building as Being moves away from a human-centred worldview to a holistic view where we shape our environment in accordance with non-human entities. In three episodes, we look at ‘building’ on different scales: The City, The Mind and Matter.
