A very interesting lecture by Verena A. Conley will take place at the UCL this week on the 30/10.

About the lecture:

Molecular Architectures

Expanding on “The Ecological Relation” in Relational Architectural Ecologies, edited by The Bartlett’s Peg Rawes, Verena Andermatt Conley will argue that even though it has been said that the architectural “metaphor” may no longer hold as a basis for constructing subjects and space, architecture is, in fact, a science and art of habitus and habitation. An ecological relation and what has been called eco-urbanism begin by assuming responsibility of those who, like architects and others, are engaged in the construction of subjectivities. They drive a wedge into habits of thinking and transform them into a habitus through awareness. Even in the age of astrophysics and liquid glass, with Deleuze and Guattari we can make a case for molecular constructions, indeed mobile and transformative architectures that will innovate what it means to “occupy” our shrinking planet.
