Lund Architecture Symposium (LAS22)

New public space in re-activated architectures

Keynote Speaker at the 2022 edition of Lund Architecture Symposium (LAS22), which will engage in (re)activating architectures.During recent years, architecture has frequently been used to communicate the ramifications of contemporary life and culture. Rarer is the communication of architecture’s role within these ramifications. Responding to this dilemma, this symposium will explore architecture that takes a much more active position within the urgency of societal restructuring, reimagining space and form beyond the norms that dictate them. The symposium will unfold different instances and aspects of intervention where (re)activating architectures claim a generative stance within the multiplicity of forces that usher the contemporary condition.

Respect and Adaptation – projects in the Anthropocene
“Climate change and the Covid pandemic make it clear that people need good public space. It should be integrative in a sense that it pays respect to an areas specific culture, its history, its customs and dreams. Landscape Architecture should adapt to a given place and functional setting, integrate desires, invisible cliches about nature and foster social inclusion.
The presentation will focus on some post-Industrial and infrastructural projects, paying tribute to former generations successes and defeats. It will question the traditional process of demolition, construction and reconstruction, by replacing it with a positive and proactive interpretation of given manmade constructions. This allows to save energy, resources and investment, become sustainable and gain a status of resilient, long-lasting placemaking.”

12:00 – 13:30 pm, 1st Dec, Wed, Berlin
19:00 – 20:30 pm, 1st Dec, Wed, Hong Kong

Open lecture, organized by the University of Hong Kong, faculty of architecture.

Climate Bridge Conference

15 octobre 2021

Tilman Latz
Online | Piscataway, New Jersey

Inspiring Case Studies: Broadening the Climate Bridge
2:00 PM – 2:45 PM

This two-day hybrid is collaboration between the Rutgers Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability and the Rutgers Climate Institute, supported by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany New York.

Climate change is creating new challenges for spatial and environmental planning on both sides of the Atlantic. While seeking to moderate the impacts of climate change from rising temperatures, extreme precipitation and sea level rise, the context of planning and policy must also address growing awareness of social equity and environmental justice. New Jersey’s underserved communities are similarly exposed to environmental challenges as their counterparts in the German Ruhr Region; settlement patterns and brownfield issues also show similarities.

This has become evident through 15 years of successful collaboration, including summer programs, a landscape Architecture design studio, internships for Rutgers students and publications. The conference Climate Bridge will foster a collaborative dialogue among planners, designers, scholars, public administrators, and decision makers from both sides of the Atlantic. Scholars from different universities in Germany and the United States will contribute papers and discussions that highlight interdisciplinary approaches to addressing the environmental, economic, political, and social dimensions of planning considering climate change.

Transformative Narratives

Tilman Latz
Online | Beijing, CN

Lecture in the context of The 3rd International Conference on Brownfields Regeneration & Ecological
Restoration on the topic „Multidimensional, Collaborative and Innovativet“.

It is crucial that we do not regard former industrial sites as “yesterday’s” and worthless,
but discover them as significant cultural landscapes for the people! Latz+Partner has discovered these themes on a large scale – Duisburg Nord – as well as on a small scale. Three projects of the last few years would be presented, which have or will have
no less an important effect on life in their respective urban fabric.
