The School of Architecture welcomes you to end of year events curated by the students from the MA Environmental Architecture. This series of events and shows focuses on research surrounding environmental and territorial disputes resulting from extraction on two sites: lithium in the Salar de Atacama in Chile and Borneo in Indonesia.
The work presented reflects upon the role of design and architecture at the intersection of these incommensurable demands, while recognising the complex system of relationships and entanglements they are part of. The exhibition brings together the dynamic cycles of both mental, social and material ecologies that inform diverse relationships between human, non-human and other than human beings. Through a programme of workshops, talks and conversations the event will explore the past, present and future of environments as more than human worlds.
