BREATHE – Investigations into our Atmospherically Entangled Future

Exhibition 19.7. – 23.7.2021

Klaus K. Loenhart Technische Universität Graz, terrain: integral designs
Silvia Benedito Harvard University
Nicola Borgmann Architekturgalerie München 

Exhibition 19.7.– 23.7.2021

Exhibition with photographs by Iwan Baan and Daniele Madia from the two books presented, BREATHE - Explorations into our Atmospherically Entangled Future, Klaus K. Loenhart and Atmospheric Anatomies: On Design, Weather, and Sensation, Silvia Benedito.

Architekturgalerie München in the KUNSTAREAL Türkenstraße 30 80333 München 
Entrance via L. Werner bookstore Mon-Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Our being-in-the-air shows that all aliveness cannot be separated for a moment from this most intimate and at the same time planetary form of atmospheric interaction and is by no means only contextual but constitutive for all life. This evening will explore breathing and the planetary atmosphere as highly vital leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime. In that regard, the atmospheric linkages of future societal activities will be traced. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air, atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and can be discovered as central agents in the conception and design of our planetary existence. Univ.Prof. Klaus K. Loenhart and Univ.Prof. Silvia Benedito introduce this thematic field in the context of the new publications of their books, in order to discuss with you the creative and societal opportunities in a time of escalating climatic and atmospheric challenges.

Our Atmospherically Entangled Future

... on the shelves

We are proud to announce and present the latest book release:

BREATHE – Investigations Into Our Atmospherically Entangled Future explores breathing and the planetary atmosphere as intensely lively leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime, uncovering intertwinements of societal activities with the air and the atmosphere. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air, atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and cam be discovered as central agents in the conception and design o four planetary existence. This carefully edited collection brings together renowned authors from various disciplines, and their ideas, observations, and examples inspire us to rethink our forms of social action and design.

EXPERTS´ TALKS @ia&l

We cordially invite you to the forthcoming IA&L Experts’ Talk at the Institute of Architecture and Landscape, TU Graz! With the Experts’ Talks, we are putting together a series of conversations that look towards post-pandemic societal practices and imaginaries of biospheric togetherness.

For the next talk in our series, we have the pleasure to host Claudia Pasquero, Director and co-founder of ecoLogicStudio in London, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Innsbruck, and lecturer and director of the Urban Morphogenesis Lab at Bartlett UCL.

Claudia Pasquero's research focuses on the convergence of disciplines such as biology, simulation science (computation), and design. The medium to explore this convergence in terms of content and form is the development of a diverse set of bio-digital design prototypes. Claudia Pasquero aims to mobilize artificial and biological intelligence to find a new design mode in a complex milieu where multiple degrees of stability, instability and diversity coexist.

Join us for one more brilliant discussion!

Claudia Pasquero (Director and co-founder of ecoLogicStudio in London, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Innsbruck, and lecturer and director of the Urban Morphogenesis Lab at Bartlett UCL)

Wednesday, 30.06.2021 | 5:00 p.m.

The event series will take place via ZOOM. For the access link, please register by email at Martina Siegwart: martina.siegwart@tugraz.at

ia&l EXPERTS' TALKS

With whom are we connected? By asking this question, we want to cultivate an insightful dialogue; we want to produce knowledge on a collective level. To this end, we invite experts. Through our Master Studio's public expert discussions, we seek answers for innovative solutions to understand how to design new typologies for collective ways of living. With this approach, we aim to equip you with the necessary tools for your role as architects of our future society.
The expert talks will be held via ZOOM. Interested audience members please send an email to martina.siegwart@tugraz.at (at least 1 day before the desired talk) to receive the ZOOM link.
We are looking forward to a lively participation!


Achtung! Achtung!

This week, from 23rd November until 27th November, we are raising even more our voices for future! All scientists, teachers and students act now for climate crisis to receive the urgently needed attention during pandemic! More info here

New ia&l Team members!

We would like to welcome Patricia and Julian to ia&l family!

Patricia is an architect studied art history and philosophy at the Humboldt University Berlin, as well as architecture at the Technical University Berlin. From 2016 to 2019 she was a research assistant at the Institute for Design and Architecture at the ETH Zurich. Her research focuses on cooperative strategies for the production of affordable housing, as well as informal settlement structures in Brazil. Julian is an architect completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture London, and the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He has interest in strategies of designing according to territorial and urban climatic aspects.

Welcome Patricia and Julian!
