Lecture Series: Ten Informants

CONTEMPLATING ENVIRONMENTS

The speakers of this lecture series, the Ten Informants, have offered us a wide variety of thoughts regarding the topics Ecology, Sustainability and Cultural Heritage. Particular views on correlations between our societies and a multitude of their spatial, temporal and societal contexts were, after all, asking about the environmental function of architecture. This lecture will reflect aspects of the previously provided considerations. It will further question actual and potential mediating roles of architecture as part of this interplay. And it shall demonstrate that the way of thinking about environments can be developed and advanced through an observational design practice.
