Living Places, Jernbanebyen
Permaculture is a holistic design philosophy that seeks to create regenerative human habitats by integrating natural systems and human cultivation. By adopting permaculture principles, designers, and architects can create complex and evolving systems that prioritise ecological health, diversity, and resilience.
In the third chapter of the seminar series, we will delve into the ways in which permaculture principles can inspire innovative approaches to architecture. Our discussion will cover topics such as upcycling resources, circular systems, self-regulation, and transformation, as well as the principle of the smallest possible intervention. Indrykning, we have assembled a diverse panel of experts, including the acclaimed Brussels-based research and architecture collective, Rotor, renowned architect Søren Pihlmann, and visual artist and permaculture designer, Skye Jin. Through this exploration, we hope to showcase the potential of permaculture to shape the future of architectural design.
We will finish the day off with drinks sur l ́herbe.
