The ecological question is not new. Over a hundred years ago, conceptual models and practices were developed in reaction to increasing industrialization and urbanization, which still resonate with our current ideas of sustainability. These approaches reflected not only a systematic understanding of the interactions between humans and the environment, and between nature and technology, but also the growing awareness of a modernity that is depriving itself of the basis of life

Sandra Bartoli and Silvan Linden are the founders of the ‘Büro für Konstruktivismus’ in Berlin. Together with Florian Wüst they are editors of the books Licht Luft Scheisse – Archaeologies of Sustainability and Licht Luft Scheisse – Über Natur (adocs Hamburg 2020).

The talk, in cooperation with the Department of Architectural Theory at the Institute of Architecture at the TU Berlin, is part of the DAZ series “We need to talk!” and will be held in English.
