Sessions on TerritoryUrbanism Beyond Technofix

SESSIONS ON TERRITORY is a series of public debates on the political economy of architecture and territory. In the name of efficiency and productivity, technology transforms spatial practices and impacts the built and natural environment, propelling us into the ongoing Anthropocene era. The seminar aims to reflect on how machines and systems of modern material culture such as AI and automation can be critically discussed in the design field—beyond techno-fix, toward a constructive response. Every intervention by a guest speaker is followed by a panel discussion with invited respondents. SESSIONS ON TERRITORY is curated by Dr. Charlotte Malterre-Barthes for Milica Topalović.
