1:1 - DESIGN IMPRINTS! NOT BUILDINGS.
The Anthropocene thesis discusses our present day and describes the accumulated human activities on the planet as the dominant geological force that is significantly changing and reshaping our environment. This understanding calls for a new view on the relationship between man-made objects (buildings) and the environment.
The exhibition ‘1:1 - DESIGN IMPRINTS! NOT BUILDINGS.’ is an attempt to provide a new, contemporary perspective on architecture. The title is thereby an allusion to scale, as an important tool in architectural practice, but directs the attention to another immanent aspect of architecture; the relationship of 'imprints' in the environment and the 'building' as an object. Because: in the Holocene, we designed buildings and imprints emerged. In the Anthropocene, we must design the imprints so that contemporary buildings can emerge.
Due to the high resolution images, the exhibition requires a significant amount of data.
