Uncivilised Paradigms

Final Conference

26th November 2022

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo
Turin, Italy

I shared a presentation called
Bees - Bodies - Buildings
as part of the following panel:
Building Critique, Making Space for Change, Repairing the World: Agency and Care in Architecture

curated by Svetlana Racanović
With the participation of Sonja Dragović, Marie Hervé, and one fellow of Uncivilised Paradigms: Carrie Foulkes
Promoted and developed by the international association BJCEM-Biennale des jeunes créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée and co-funded by the European Union.

The session will focus on critical and ethical reexamination of the practice of architecture for making it the agent of environmentally responsible culture. Architecture will be reflected as eco-ethic-aesthetic (re)articulation of space, as theory and practice qualified to exercise “moral imagination” and support political and social engagement, proficient to respect local/global sustainability and grow environments that would bring collective benefit and foster sense of community, social empathy and ecology of care – equal care for the self and for the others, for human and other-than-human, for cultural and for natural surroundings, for social (human) and the ecological (biophysical). The questions are: how to balance professional/technical competences with ethical decision-making, how to design environments responsibly within vital ecological concerns (ethical design criteria through recognition of environmental ethic), how to escape the logic of profit, exploitation of resources and globalised, instrumentalised, technologised and commodified construction?

My heart is a vacuum of horror;
I want to run amok but I am too civilized
