Lecture in Technical University of Braunschweig
Topic of Symposium and Lectures
Public lectures focusing on alternative sustainable strategies that explore the synergies in combining architecture and plant material. Speakers will present projects, research, their conceptual approaches and experiences. In the panel discussions, we will exchange and discuss opinions on the relevance of Hortitecture for in the current international architectural discourse, in search for a green urban future.
The Hortitecture 01 Symposium is part of a research seminar to compare and analyze architectural solutions based on traditional and vernacular wisdom as well as recent explorations, and how these are fueling an entirely new discourse in the field of architecture. In studying the intersections between architectural, horticultural and technological practices, our goal is to transfer knowledge beyond building design to a larger urban scope, creating better, more sustainable future cities.
