“WE ARE THE EXPERIMENT”

OPEN LECTURE 9.6.2014

Ethiopian Institute for Architecture, Building Construction and city Development, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia

5.30 pm (A hall) – Architecture and Design III

 

Creating shifted [space]perspectives on architecture in working with space parameters and designing for space and earth defines the work of LIQUIFER which is the focus of this lecture.

“Currently, we are experiencing ourselves being in a laboratory as experiment and observers at the same time”, the Austrian Philosopher Herbert Lachmayer stated this recently. Astronaut Peggy Whitson, former commander of the International Space Station recorded the same while being up there: “In this orbital outpost, we are the experiment”. This perspective of living in a laboratory and having two roles simultaneously also has implications on the way we view and define our lives and design architecture.

 

Dr. Barbara Imhof and Waltraut Hoheneder are architects, space designers and researchers and lead LIQUIFER Systems Group a unique interdisciplinary platform of experts from the fields of architecture, engineering and science who engage in developing future habitable environments for earth and space.
