Over dit evenement

A transformative relationship

Studio Ossidiana is fascinated by the development of human-animal relationships over time: on the one hand, how humans have adapted themselves; and on the other, how animals have been domesticated. For Studio Ossidiana, the meaning of this relationship goes beyond the design of animal shelters. The human-animal relationship is seen from a relational and ecological perspective. Animals are not just meat and leather but exist as cultural and religious symbols and sources of knowledge. The appearance of a beast can symbolize a prosperous future, or act as a harbinger of danger. Nowadays humankind attempts to control the animal environment as far as possible, framing and designing its boundaries by using spatial, legal and political instruments, concretized in regulations and fences.

The Studio Ossidiana lecture presents three scales at which animals have been institutionalized and abstracted: the domesticating cage, the urban zoo, and the territorial national park. They will expand on the transformative power of these archetypes by presenting research from MIT and the Jan Van Eyck Academie.

Animal Encounters

Through a spatial installation of models, drawings and cabinets, Studio Ossidiana explores how architecture mediates between all sorts of creatures, making room for a variety of encounters, setting the stage for interactions between humans and animals, and addressing issues of proximity, scale and cross-species politics. In addition to Studio Ossidiana’s research, a selection of projects from the National Collection for Dutch Architecture and Planning is showcased. These propose a relational understanding of the animal-human encounter and expand the ecological to notions of systems theory.

Studio Ossidiana is led by Giovanni Bellotti and Alessandra Covini.

Animal Encounters is the successor to Habitat: Expanding Architecture, and part of the Total Space project by the Jaap Bakema Study Centre, on the cross-pollination between architecture, planning, anthropology and systems theory.
