If we are to meet the challenges of climate change, we must act radically different than today. Artistic research practices, which support an attentive and holistic approach, offer a methodological tool box which can bring to light relationships across cultural and ecological predicaments.
Film creates awareness through tangible or imaginary visions and can thereby suggest alternative forms of knowledge and action in architecture. This event combines screenings of recent experimental and co-creative film work with a panel discussion about the film medium – including drone footage – as a means for exploration, collaboration and reflection.
We will screen the short film Elephant in the Room by Design Earth - an eco-feminist fable about the climate crisis narrated by Donna Haraway.

Design Earth is led by Rania Ghosn (Lebanon, b. 1977) and El Hadi Jazairy (Algeria, b.1970) and based in Cambridge, MA and Ann Arbor, MI. The design research practice engages the speculative architectural project as medium for making visible and public the geographies of the climate crisis. Their work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, including commissions for Biennale Architettura (Main Exhibition, 2021; US Pavilion, 2018; Kuwait Pavilion, 2016), Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism (2017), Oslo Architecture Triennale (2016); and shows at La Triennale Di Milano, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Matadero Madrid; Sursock Museum, Beirut; Times Museum, Guangzhou, and the New York Museum of Modern Art. The work of DESIGN EARTH is recognized by the NY Architectural League, Boghossian Foundation and Graham Foundation, amongst other honors. They are authors of Geographies of Trash (2015), Geostories: Another Architecture for the Environment (2nd. edition 2020; 2018)and The Planet After Geoengineering (2021).
In order to change how we design and construct our built environment, we need to understand the impact of our decisions beyond the spreadsheet. This applies to how, where and with what we make our buildings.
