Theory of Living Spaces

2018S, Seminar (SE), 2.0 semester hours, course number S01523

Description

NEAR.MISS

Every spatial manipulation of a given environment triggers changes of an existing, complex system of mutual dependencies. As the natural and cultural environment is constituted by manifold reciprocal relationships between material and immaterial conditions, the particular temporal, geographical and socio-political situation make up the specific framework for adopting change. By means of selected examples, common paradigms of urban and spatial organizational principles are critically reflected in order to reassess their relevance in regard to actual political and societal dynamics.

It is the means of orientation which establishes our place in the world. Looking at instances in the history of explorations, its trajectories, findings, failures and related inventions – both in time and space – puts emphasis on the reasoning of a narrated reality that resides within a seemingly factual, thus may not necessarily reveal the only truth. Challenging the dimensions of the architectural and urban discipline in its broadest understanding (participating in a mesh-up of political, societal, ethical, environmental, economic, technological, religious etc. system of various kinds of agreements) we will speculate on alternative views, to extrapolating different possible futures of a planetary spatial revolution in earthly urbanization.
