Earth Gods: Urbanism and Landscape in the Anthropocene

10 October 2017 | 16:00 h | Lecture by Richard Weller

Place: ETH Zurich, Hönggerberg | HIL H 40.9

Lecturer: Richard Weller, Professor at the Martin and Margy Meyerson Chair of Urbanism; Chair of Landscape Architecture at The University of Pennsylvania.

Departing from Stuart Brand’s expression that in the Anthro- pocene humans have become Gods and «have to get good at it», this lecture explores the spatial tensions between conserva- tion and development on a global scale and builds the case for an expanded understanding of design in the 21st century.
