The online lecture and dialogue will trace the conceptual evolution of sustainability through the projects and research agendas of John Hong’s Seoul National University based lab, Project : Architecture. The talk will examine the trajectory of sustainability from material and energy-based solutions to typological transformations of buildings and urban form. Ultimately, the examples will question whether the concept of the human-centered ‘Anthropocene’ must be radically rethought into a more integrated coordination between architecture and the environment.
