This event will be conducted through Zoom only.
For Zoom attendance, please register here.
The workshop will start with an outline of contrapractice as futuring. This will be followed by briefly detailing five contrapractice concepts/methods and their significance in the development of re-futuring architecture and design. They represent areas of research, new learning imperatives, contrapractice as professional development, and new economic opportunities. The five concepts/methods are:
- Recasting the city as event
- Designing in time
- Second-order imagination/higher order reflection
- Metrofitting and a new material ecology
- Prefigurative relocation
To ‘ground’ these futuring areas of activity in a local context, visit the NYC Climate Displacement Project before attending the workshop.
This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff.
