To celebrate the launch of Issue 8 of the architectural journal P.E.A.R.: Paper for Emerging Architectural Research, An Atlas of Global and Local Imaginaries presents the symposium Global/Local. This event will showcase a series of architects and researchers, who have contributed to this latest issue of P.E.A.R and who’s work explores how architecture, manifested as spatial, temporal, material, and programmatic conditions, can operate critically within complex social, ecological, political, and cultural systems. As integral to the discussion at the symposium will be the intent to explore questions about how architecture can seek to engage with, negate and even enhance circumstances – whether economic, social, aesthetic, or political – that exist in specific urban and rural locations, but are driven by dynamic and complex forces at national and international scales.
Participants: Ana Betancour, Matthew Butcher, Ana Monrabal Cook, Shahed Saleem, Heidi Svenningsen and Carl-Johan Vesterlund
An Atlas of Global and Local Imaginaries is part of Future School, a series of public events and discussions associated with the Korean Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Biennale. Utilising Future School as a platform through which to exchange ideas and experiences An Atlas of Global and Local Imaginaries has been hosting a series of round table discussions in order produce an online archive and interactive cartography of projects focusing on critical pedagogies around ecology, the commons, environmental justice, decolonisation, and social engagement.
