LECTURE

Architectures of

Co-Existence


[…] Ecology isn’t just about global warming, recycling, and solar power-and also not just to do with everyday relationships between humans and nonhumans. It has to do with love, loss, despair, and compassion. It has to do with depression and psychosis. It has to do with capitalism and with what might exist after capitalism. It has to do with amazement, open-mindedness, and wonder. It has to do with doubt, confusion, and skepticism. It has to do with concepts of space and time. It has to do with delight, beauty, ugliness, disgust, irony, and pain. It has to do with consciousness and awareness. It has to do with ideology and critique. It has to do with reading and writing. It has to do with race, class, and gender. It has to do with sexuality. It has to do with ideas of self and the weird paradoxes of subjectivity. It has to do with society. It has to do with coexistence.
 
Timothy Morton, The Ecological Thought
 
If we look at the conflictual and exclusionary conditions of contemporary urban production the concept of co-existence requires a reconsideration. Within contested urban territories togetherness of parallel and incompatible realities relies on spaces for negotiation, adaptation and transformation in order to enable diverse systems and languages to interact. 
 
The M-ARCH T introductory studio investigates models of co-existence in its various manifestations and develops site-specific typological interventions along locations of the former Berlin Wall. By questioning how spaces of diverse natures can co-exist the studio is also addressing relationships between human, natural and technological environments.
 
The studio is accompanied by a project integrated exercise (PIV) on theories of co-existence (in collaboration with FG Architekturtheorie, Prof. Gleiter).


Organization & Schedule
The studio is planned to be organized in hybrid mode (workplaces and events at the faculty building + online assistance). Due to the restriction in the context of the pandemic regulations the emphasis of the studio will be on team work and common guidelines for layouts and formats in order to facilitate exchange and group discussions.
