Ecology Beyond Nature, EcoLogicStudio

by

The dissolution of the dichotomy ‘artifice vs. nature’ opens new possibilities in the conception of the city from a non-anthropocentric perspective. Urban design can then be conceived as the breeding of relationships between industrial, agricultural, biological and social systems. This emergent notion of bio-urbanity establishes a link between the instant and immaterial qualities of contemporary urbanism and the slow and material cycles of biological life. The lecture will illustrate bio-inspired algorithmic design methods at the core of EcoLogicStudio’s work, as well as the new academic stream in Urban Morphogenesis
