SESSIONS ON TERRITORY
Urbanism as Material Accumulation
Materials
SESSIONS ON TERRITORY is a series of public debates on the political economy of architecture and territory. Focusing on the material cultures of architecture and urbanism — from territories of resource extraction to the construction site — the upcoming series unravels contemporary forces at work in the formation of the built and natural environments. Through a series of debates with invited guests, the seminar aims to critically reflect on the materiality of contemporary urbanism. Every intervention by a guest speaker is followed by a panel discussion with invited respondents.

The Spring Semester 2021 Sessions on Territory is curated by Prof Milica Topalovic, Asst Prof Charlotte Malterre-Barthes (Harvard GSD) and Hans Hortig.
