Keller Easterling – Medium Design
in conversation with Marc Angélil, Arno Brandlhuber, Charlotte Malterre Barthes and Milica Topalović
KELLER EASTERLING is an architect, professor at Yale, and one of the most eloquent theorists of architecture and design.
In ‘Medium Design’ (Strelka Press, 2018) Easterling argues that design tools are often inadequate to address contemporary chemistries of power. Medium Design treats space as an information system and a mixing chamber for social, political, and technical networks. It inverts a typical emphasis on object over field, in order to prompt innovative thought about both spatial and non-spatial problems. The session
is made possible by the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum.
