UTSOA Fall 2020 Lecture Series: Alexandra Arènes—“Learning from Critical Zones”

Join The University of Texas School of Architecture for a lecture with Alexandra Arènes, live-streamed on the Texas Architecture YouTube channel on Wednesday, September 30 at 1:00 pm CDT

“Learning from Critical Zones” | Alexandra Arènes – Société d’Objets Cartographiques, Paris

Alexandra Arènes is a French landscape architect, researcher at the University of Manchester, and co-founder of Société d’Objets Cartographiques, a think tank focused on earth-political design. Through SOC, Arènes has been working with scientists in “Critical Zones”—landscapes equipped with scientific instruments that mark environmental disturbances caused by human activities—to find a way to become sensitive to the earth through the arts and, conversely, to find a way to use science to influence design practices that are too-well established. In her lecture, she will share these collaborative research experiences and her experience designing “gaia-graphy,” a biogeochemically-based alternative form of visualization.
