“Claudia Pasquero posits that, in the age of the Anthropocene, it is necessary that we search for non-anthropocentric modes of reasoning and designing. Through a series of recent research projects that explore the interdependence of digital and biological intelligence via non-human living organisms, her lecture will illustrate how a renewed appreciation of beauty in architecture has evolved into an operational tool to design and measure architecture’s actual ecological intelligence. Pasquero is an architect, curator, author, and educator whose research and work operate at the intersection of biology, computation, and design. She is founder and co-director of ecoLogic Studio in London, Lecturer and Director of the Urban Morphogenesis Lab at the Bartlett UCL, and Professor of Landscape Architecture and founder of the Synthetic Landscape Lab at Innsbruck University. Her lecture will be preceded by a short interview with UTSOA’s Danelle Briscoe, which will serve as a prologue to the OTHER NATURE exhibition opening in February 2021, in which Pasquero’s work will also be featured.”
