The lecture will present how storytelling, collapsing environments and innovation in design shape an innovative understanding of the built environment. With a photographic documentation of unique places on the Planet Earth Scavengers and Other Creatures explores the gripping power of myth and fiction as radical narratives for imagining the near future of cities and forests.

Ricardo de Ostos creates speculative fictions that envision architectural projects in shifting environmental and cultural contexts. He lives, works and teaches in London at both, the Architectural Association and The Bartlett School of Architecture. He is the co-director of NaJa & deOstos studio and co-author of ‘The Hanging Cemetery of Baghdad’ (Springer Wien/New York, 2006) ‘Ambiguous Spaces’ (Princeton Press, 2007) and ‘Scavengers and Other Creatures in Promised Lands’ (AA, 2017).
