ADAPTr Events - Bio-Salon: Claudia Pasquero
Wed 30 November 2016, 18:30 – 20:30 GMT
The BioSalon round table will discuss design methodologies operating at the intersection of disciplines such as biology, computation and urban ecologies.
The conversation will stem from an attempt to gather a non-anthropocentric perspective, debating the blurred distinction between nature and artifice, landscape and city and ultimately the biosphere and the contemporary urbansphere.
Trough the work of the invited guests we will look at the world from the renewed perspective of macro-scale satellite monitoring, reveling planetary infrastructures, as well as the micro-scale of fundamental cellular organization.
How can this trans-scalar journey provide an analogue model of the future bio-city? Can this form of analogy enable a re-interpretation of the contemporary urbanity?
The BioSalon will be structured as a conversation between architects, artists, microbiologist and theorists: Ricardo De Ostos, Simon Park, Marco Poletto, Melissa Sterry and Emmanouil Zaroukas. The event is curated and moderated by Claudia Pasquero, ADAPT-r fellow.
Please note the entrance for this event will be via the main University reception at 35 Marylebone Road.
