Ecological culture is becoming increasingly prominent in the design of the city today. It is the pivot that enables us to articulate new ways of looking, proceeding and operating, generating a new set of arts of practice in and for the ecological city.
The transformations that our societies and environments are currently going through are jeopardizing our way of being in the world. As such they challenge our capacity to set out projects or, more concretely, to produce prospective visions and to anchor tangible ambitions in them.
This context encourages us to imagine new ways of acting that enable us to integrate uncertainty. We must go beyond torment – not undergo – and invent actions capable of fitting into the climate regime that is taking shape.
Moving from a system of autonomous objects to one of related objects opens up new perspectives on interactions, forms and processes. Organized around these three chapters, the exhibition shows how ecological culture can colour, inform and renew project culture.
This exhibition was originally realised by UR bureau d'architecture et d'urbanisme in collaboration with Archizoom where it was first presented from 28 February to 15 May 2023. It is shown in a reduced version in our space et al. in Brussels this autumn.
