MAXXI Temporary School

Rethinking anthropization

A YAP FEST 2016 event
MAXXI Piazza, YAP Space – admittance free subject to availability of places
curated by PARASITE 2.0

Three seminars with scientists, theorists and designers, followed by screenings in order to explore the implications of the recognition of the Anthropocene

Four experts meet to discuss the issues that rotate around the contemporary idea of “environmental sustainability”, questioning how man and in particular architects should modify their approach to the anthropization of the world.

Recognising that we live in the Anthropocene, that is to say the era of the definitive human impact on the planet, encourages us to take a more comprehensive and radical look at the problem of sustainability, reconsidering the ways in which we act as designers.

Speakers
Alessandro Bava architect and designer
Pedro Gadanho Director MAAT – Museum of Art Architecture and Technology, Lisbona
Liam Young architect and designer

Moderator
Tamar Shafrir architect and writer
