Come join us for the BioSalon roundtable exploring design methodologies operating at the intersection of biology, computation and urban ecologies, hosted by ADAPT-r Events / Ambika P3, at University of Westminster, 18:30 - 20:30, 30th November 2016. The speakers will be architects Ricardo De Ostos, Emmanouil Zaroukas and Marco Poletto, together with microbiologist Dr. Simon Park, and myself. Our discussion will be moderated by ADAPT-r fellow Claudia Pasquero, founder of ecoLogicStudio, and curator of the event.
Extract from BioSalon's event listing:
"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.
Through the work of the invited guests we will look at the world from the renewed perspective of macro-scale satellite monitoring, revealing 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."
