Descrizione

Alla luce dell’attuale crisi politica dovuta al cambiamento climatico, quale contributo può apportare l’architettura a un nuovo immaginario planetario del nostro ambiente contemporaneo? Architecture as Measure vede cambiamento climatico come idea culturale e politica che chiede all’architettura una rinnovata immaginazione ambientale. La mostra affianca gli aspetti apparentemente ordinari della costruzione architettonica in Turchia con le rispettive controparti a livello planetario come le geografie dell’estrazione dei materiali, i processi di produzione e distribuzione, la manutenzione e la cura. Attraverso la narrazione, i diorami e le ricerche, Architecture as Measure suggerisce un percorso alternativo per il rapporto dell’architettura con il mondo, in cui è agente e non semplice convenuto.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Image 1 – How will we live together?
In light of the current political crisis around climate change, what can architecture contribute towards a new planetary imaginary of our contemporary environment beyond environmentalism and technological determinism? Rather than limiting the role of climate change for design as a problem to solve, can we speculate on architecture as a measure through which the environment might be imagined? Architecture as Measure positions climate change as a cultural and political idea that requires a renewed architectural environmental imagination.

The driving prompt of the project is that architecture needs to see larger questions of planetary imagination and the everyday aspects of its own making as one and the very same category. In the context of climate emergency, Architecture as Measure positions architecture as a measure to provoke an alternative planetary imagination that can assess our place on Earth and our role in relation to the others we live together with: as architects with other disciplines and domains of work and as species with more-than-human others.

The exhibition installation comprises four diorama rooms, each focusing on one specific site of architecture, ranging from resource extraction, material supply chains, construction, maintenance, and care in Turkey.
