PROPOSALS FOR OTHER WORLDS: ARCHITECTURES, MATERIALS, INTERACTIONS
As designers, architects, engineers, and others, we have seen the disruption of global patterns of living across species with the emergence of the COVID-19 virus; we’ve witnessed global and social disruption sparked by the protests over the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis; we’ve seen the rising temperature profile and subsequent bush fires of Western Australia, in addition to the fires along the Northwest coasts of the United States due to climate change. As researchers, we are living during a time of upheaval where, despite the uncertainty of life as it currently is lived, proposals for a re-imagined world must be formulated and acted upon. What projections and speculations have we as researchers, designers, architects, artists, engineers, etc. made that ask critical questions about places, ways of living, and materials that make up our environment? What kind of a world is, or might be, unfurled by your research? Can we, as researchers, untangle and reveal relationships about the past that also project a possibility for a new present? This ArcInTex Network meeting will be an opportunity to discuss and understand the speculations about new world making through the research we do.
This is a free and virtual event.
