Symposium “Polycephalum City” Day I
On 14-15th of September TAB 2017 hosts a 2-day international symposium entitled Polycephalum City taking place in the Balti Jaama railway waiting pavilion. The symposium will discuss the role of architecture in the context of current socio-ecological crisis, and calls for a critical reading of the geological era, which scientists call the Anthropocene. Curated by architect, urban designer, ecologist and Chief Curator of TAB 2017 Claudia Pasquero, the dialogues at the event challenge typical assumptions of what constitutes the boundary between natural and artificial realms.
Headline speakers and participants include Lucy Bullivant, well-known international place vision strategist, curator and critic; Mitchell Joachim, renowned innovator in ecological design, architecture and urban design, co-founder of Terreform ONE, and an Associate Professor of Practice at NYU; Areti Markopoulou, leading Greek architect, Academic Director at IAAC in Barcelona, educator and urban technologist working at the intersection between architecture and digital technologies, and Marco Poletto, co-founder and director of ecoLogicStudio, an architect, author and educator.
