Public Lectures: Degrowth Histories (OAT)

Architectural historians examine case studies from the 1960s and ´70s where architectural practice, education and media entangle with ideas of ‘degrowth’. Speakers and disputants include Beatriz Colomina, Felicity D. Scott, Caroline Maniaque-Benton, Isabelle Doucet, Alan Adams Smart, Ingrid Halland, Martin Braathen, Anna Ulak, Dag Norling, Eyvind Kvaale, Turid Horgen, Matthew Dalziel, Erik Fenstad Langdalen, Thomas McQuillan, Kastler Skjeseth Architects, Beata Labuhn, a.o. The event is open to the public.


Before, during and after the global countercultural revolutions of 1968, both architects and non-architects explored urban and architectural alternatives for a better world. Many of these experiments challenged the necessity of economic growth and mass consumerism as basis for human societies. Some inspired generations of urbanists, architects and educators thereafter, whilst others were yet too radical. “Degrowth Histories” is a day of academic lectures open to a wider audience, harboring potential inspiration, but also caveats for practicing architects who wish to work with ‘degrowth’ today.
