How I met the Designosaur - Eine Denkfigur im Anthropozän
05.07.23 - Lecture in the framework of "Mit:twoch".
A visit into the present - the Anthropocene - and the search for a contemporary architectural attitude generated the figure of the Designosaurs. Familiar and ambivalent. Sober and emotional. Victim and causer. A friend, an enemy and the only species we should not feel sad for, if it does not survive the sixth mass extinction in the history of the earth.

Der Designosaur - eine Denkfigur im Anthropozän
10.02.23 - Lecture in the framework of the "Bauen-Denken-Machen" lecture series at the Münster School of Architecture.
No one intentionally designs a Designosaur! We do it out of habit, ignorance and the lack of contemporary narratives in a radically different environment - the Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Chtulucene. In search of the spaces and constructions of the present, we discuss and argue based on our experience and habits and with the vocabulary and concepts of thought from the past - the geological epoch of the Holocene. It is the same habits and thinking concepts that have caused the challenges of the present. How do we need to design so that we don't design a Designosaurs? So buildings that are designed with outdated thought patterns of the Holocene, but built in the present - the Anthropocene. The figure of the designosaurs is a tool for establishing new, radical thoughts and new narratives.
