Accustomise the Otherwise

Sarah Bovelett, Tatjana Schneider und Christina Serifi

Architecture, as part of the modern project, carries a dualistic view of the world: humans and non-humans, nature and technology, culture and science. Our lives and societies are structured around this attitude, this way of thinking and being. But as Latour asks: ‘What if we have been completely wrong?’ What if this polarity has never existed?

Within the hyperobject of climate breakdown, as Tim Morton describes the vast and multifaceted ecological crisis that transcends our conventional understanding of time and space, the idea of architecture as an independent and autonomous discipline, assumed to act upon individuals and groups offering solutions to their problems is – at best – a delusional fantasy.
