11.19.20 In Conversation | Diana Agrest and Lydia Kallipoliti: The Body, In Question

The subject of the body has deep roots in Western Architecture from the texts of the renaissance reading of Vitruvius we can fast forward to the culture of disembodiment brought about as a result of cybernetics, information, mediatization, virtual reality and in the long stretch in between all forms of architectural constructions of the body.

But, what body is the body in question?

11.16.20 In-Class Guest Lecture | Martin Haas and Thomas Auer: Rammed Earth

This lecture is hosted by Structures II with professors Thorsten Helbig and Florian Meier.

A transformation towards a carbon neutral building stock and climate change requires mitigation and adaptation strategies. At the same time it is essential that a transformation process leads to healthy, comfortable and inspirational environments - indoors as well as outdoors. Integrated design strategies and a performance driven design process is the basis to find answers on the question how the challenges of our time will transform and change our built environment - a transformation, which needs to be radical in order to achieve a full de-carbonization of our building stock and to provide a highly comfortable environment. Form and material choice is creating an essential foundation towards truly sustainable buildings. Natural materials such as wood and rammed earth are minimizing embodied energy, while contributing to an environmental quality in terms of aesthetics, haptic as well as thermal quality. However, to be convincing as a profession our work needs to be aspirational and inspirational. Academic and practice-based research must determine the level of aspiration - with exemplary lighthouse projects such as the Alnatura office world - which inspire the industry as well as the public.
