ARCHITECTURAL THEORIES OF THE ENVIRONMENT: POSTHUMAN TERRITORY
As architects and designers, we struggle to
reconcile ever increasing environmental, humanitarian, and technological
demands placed on our projects. Our new geological era, the
Anthropocene, marks humans as the largest environmental force on the
planet and suggests that conventional anthropocentric approaches to
design must accommodate a more complex understanding of the
interrelationship between architecture and environment
for the first time, editor Ariane Lourie Harrison collects the essays
of architects, theorists, and sustainable designers that together
provide a framework for a posthuman understanding of the design
environment. An introductory essay defines the key terms, concepts, and
precedents for a posthuman approach to architecture, and nine fully
illustrated case studies of buildings from around the globe demonstrate
how issues raised in posthuman theory provide rich terrain for
contemporary architecture, making theory concrete. By assembling a range
of voices across different fields, from urban geography to critical
theory to design practitioners, this anthology offers a resource for
design professionals, educators, and students seeking to grapple the
ecological mandate of our current period.
Case studies include
work by Arakawa and Gins, Arons en Gelauff, Casagrande, The Living,
Minifie van Schaik, R & Sie (n), SCAPE, Studio Gang, and xDesign.
