  • Urban Ecology: Building as Being at RAVB

    Urban Ecology: Building as Being at RAVB

    Building as Being: the Sequel! In September and October 2021, Studio Esmee Geerken, Waag & the Rotterdamse Academie van Bouwkunst organise the lecture series 'Urban Ecology: Building as Being'. In this series we explore the crosssection between Architecture (from ἀρχι- ‘chief’ and τέκτων ‘creator’) and Ecology (from “oikos” = house “Logos”: study), both studies of the house. How can we merge both disciplines, to create niches, dwellings and shelters, in harmony with the environment, instead of disrupting the environment?

    This lectures series aims to enhance the awareness of the bigger systems you are part of, as human beings, and as architects. In dialogue with experts from various fields, we trace back the origins of architecture. Beyond the human, beyond the living: drawing from the fields of geology, chemistry, biology, extending into the realm of the humanities -philosophy, psychology, and neurosciences. All lectures will be made avaiable through the Waag website later this fall. Stay tuned for more info soon!
