PUBLICATION | “Cahier 1: Values of Survival”

In the context of the themes from the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia: How will we live together? and the Dutch pavilion: Who is we? (commissioned by the Het Nieuwe Instituut), ‘Cahier 1: Values of Survival’ reflects upon the worlds of policy, research, and design. Edited by Caroline Nevejan and Huda Abi Fares, and featuring a long list of authors, this publication brings together a wide diversity of voices on a number of urgent social, urban, and ecological issues.

“Cahier 1: Values for Survival” explores themes such as: Polyphonic Cities, Multispecies Urbanism, The Multiplicity of Other, Sharing Research and Circular City, and provides reflections on a number of futures to imply into media architecture, including more than human perspectives. This closely relates to our MAB20’s theme #FuturesImplied, which questions what future scenarios are implied in today’s urban context? And how can we shape our urban technologies to respond to their surroundings, contributing to cities that are both socially and ecologically sustainable?
