MA Thesis Kolloqium
PROTOTYPING THE
POST-FOSSIL CITY

Teaching
Summer 19



The transformation to a post-fossil future will require change on all scales. We believe that the next generation of architects have a key role to play in defining how we respond to the huge challenges posed by climate change and the increasing social costs of maintaining our global urban lifestyle. This task will require a new kind of designer, one less concerned with the self-consuming discourse of the profession, and more orientated outwards, more focussed on designing buildings that can instigate and embody change processes aiming towards inclusion, equality and co-existence. These values will be a central part of our process this semester, we want to work together with real actors, contexts and materials to generate visions for new post-fossil spaces for change in Berlin.
