From Research to Design - Mobility
Thursday, 13 September 2012
In collaboration with the Institute for Cultural History and Theory, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and the Universidad de Buenos Aires
ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory is pleased to continue its collaboration with the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin on one of its core subjects, mobility. ANCB and the KOSMOS project of the Humboldt Universität are endeavours dedicated to exploring and advancing interdisciplinary enquiry. While ANCB is focused on the design disciplines with the city as its field of action, the KOSMOS project is focused on the natural sciences and the humanities relating to 'knowledge and design'. We regard both endeavours as complimentary and mutually beneficial.
This Lab Talk will take place in the framework of the KOSMOS Summer University 2012 on Mobility. "The Summer University does not gather classic mobility research but tries to think and design mobility anew (...). In the process the metropolis is apprehended as a space of encounters and collisions." The Lab Talk will present three positions on the application of knowledge: from the natural sciences, architecture, and art. The discussion that follows will assist the participants of the Summer University as they move from the research to the design stages of their projects and will draw from the experience and input of the wider audience.
