As the first generation of digital-native architects, millennials practicing today no longer consider architecture a discipline defined by a body of inherited knowledge, but as a means to understand the relationships between humans and their environment. Architecture is unburdened from its imperative to provide shelter and instead is mobilized as a set of operations that can reproduce, interrogate, and dismantle ideas about the world around us. This generation also faces the ever-darkening spectre of climate collapse, whose urgency mounts as much of globalized culture draws further away from the ecology that sustains it. The Talking Trees project resides at the confluence of these phenomena.

Faced with advanced neoliberalism, fracture, and the impotence of the architectural object, designers will experiment with and speculate on the potential of new architectural methodologies to redefine the architectural product. The projects of each team provide both a venue for the development of methodological approaches derived from their unique geographic, political, and economic contexts, as well as a critical re-constitution of the agency of trees in culture. The staging of an architectural event as the culmination of these experiments is a statement of our intention to orient towards a productive, generative, and egalitarian future: to plant.

What does an architecture centered around a theory and an ethics of care look like? Is it possible for architecture as a professional discipline—born of a market-oriented, colonial logic—to restructure itself according to the values of repair, maintenance, and other forms of reproductive labor? Can the architect serve as caregiver? Answers to these questions abound: from the organization of self-governing communities and the gestures of performance artists to the creation of digital information commons and the lessons derived from mycorrhizal networks. These images offer glimpses of the diverse inspirations, actions, provocations, and possibilities for an alternative architecture—an architecture of care.

The material culture of trees as a building material has constituted many of our habits, customs, and rituals of domestic living. In Korea, Ondol - the vernacular radiant flooring system covered with wooden panels- created a sedentary domestic lifestyle. With technological advancements, the Ondol system and the flooring material evolved. Eventually, faux wood made of plastic replaced wooden flooring. From primary building material to a mere camouflage on plastic, the material culture of trees has also changed with the greater economic and cultural forces at play. This archive is a collection of images that traces the material culture of trees as a domestic building material in Korea. The images are sourced from historical documents, construction manuals, and blog posts.

Scientific studies on trees, much like architecture and other disciplines, are influenced by the greater political, environmental, and cultural forces that shape our lives. From an expendable natural resource to now as a remedy to offset the impact of climate change, our understanding of trees has shifted the human-arboreal relationship in the built environment. This archive is a collection of images sourced from scientific journals, pop culture, and architectural literature that trace the ripple effect of scientific studies on trees on the human-arboreal relationship and the built environment from the mid-19th century.

In November of 2019, still unclear about what to do for my thesis, I read a New Yorker article that trees communicate with one another1 . Trees had nothing to do with what I had been thinking about, but I emailed Dr. Richard Karban, the scientist mentioned in The New Yorker, to ask if I could talk to him about his work. In preparing for my call with Dr. Karban, reading his books and publications, I noticed that ecological studies lend themselves well to architectural solutions. Scientists have to manipulate the environment for their studies. They excavate land to study roots, build tall structures to study trees, construct long networks of pipe to study water levels, and do all of this while having to be conscious about their footprint. I had formulated what I would ask him and how I could potentially turn this into a thesis project, but the conversation that ensued was far more impactful than I had expected.

After discussing his research and clarifying my interest in his work, we started to talk about the state of ecological studies in the United States. The efficacy of sensors and algorithms is a much-needed advancement to our understanding of the world, but this overemphasis on data-driven scientific studies is driving young ecologists away from conducting fieldwork. While sensors can register information far beyond what humans are capable of, using these devices as a proxy for understanding our environments runs the risk of missing the anomalies and narrowing the scientific scope to what everyone already believes is important. He emphasized that the best contemporary ecological research methodology combines observations, models, and manipulative experiments to arrive at a more complete explanation than any single approach could provide.

Architecture, much like this present trajectory of ecological studies that Dr. Karban presents, is often built on a pre-existing set of self-referential agendas without observing the economic, cultural, ecological, and material realities that confront our lives. Such practice has created a large gap between the discipline and the practical reality in which it is embedded. For architects to engage in larger issues that directly deal with the built environment, we need to expand our methodology beyond the insular disciplinary boundaries. Such an expanded and interdisciplinary work takes time and requires a series of ‘connecting the dot moments’ to make it work — not only to digest information that we are not familiar with but also to depend on other fields’ expertise in framing an architectural argument.

My conversation with Dr. Karban changed the way I approached my thesis. In some ways, I was looking to find a topic and a typology that I was familiar with, something that I would be comfortable making arguments around. Yet his comments on a ‘best ecological process’ made me realize that architecture, too, can benefit from expanding our modes of knowledge production. For my thesis, inspired by this personal overture into a new discipline, I designed a field station, home and lab for scientists conducting fieldwork. The project is sited in a decommissioned naval base airport in Jamaica Bay, New York, where the coastal habitation is thinning due to sea-level rise, the maritime forest is struggling to survive due to forest fragmentation, and the abandoned facilities have formed their own ecosystems from decades without maintenance. The stations are designed to observe and facilitate these transformations on and along the different edges of the site, functioning as ecological proxies by subjecting architecture to become part of the ecological cycle while measuring the stations’ weathering by and into nature over time. Dr. Karban’s work encouraged me to look at ecological transformation through the subjective viewpoint of plant life and to visit the research stations to experience how the trees were now being studied.

Unfortunately, three days before my scheduled trip to one such site, COVID-19 shut down all university facilities, including my intended site. My luck had perhaps run out, but my conversation with Dr. Karban and other scientists, anthropologists, and engineers gave me confidence that there is a place in architecture to be part of a bigger discussion, in this case, to elevate the study of ecological studies. Since then, I’ve decided to take fate into my own hands, and look to local sites of study where I could continue to push this discussion. This venture into a relative unknown started with a New Yorker article, some books, and a phone call, but a few months later, I am out in the Pinelands National Reserve in NJ, wondering how we can study how trees talk to one another.

말하는 나무들

말하는 나무들

베니스, 서울, 온라인, 전시, 설치, 생성대화

동일한 환경에 개입하는 서로 다른 접근법을 연결하다

개요

디지털 네이티브 건축가 첫 세대로서, 지금 활동 중인밀레니얼들은 더 이상 건축을 전해져온 지식으로 정의되는 분야라 생각하지 않는다. 그들의 시선에서 본 건축은 오히려 인간과 환경의 관계를 더욱 잘 이해할 수 있는 하나의 수단이 된다. 건축은 주거 제공이라는 의무의 짐을 내려놓는 대신, 주변 세계에 관한 아이디어를 재생산하고 질문하고 교환하고 해체하는 활동으로서 가동되고 있다. 실로 오픈소스 학습의 확산으로 전통적인 분과의 경계가 무너지면서, 아직 명확히 정의되지는 않은 새로운 비물리적인 로컬리티가 출현하고 있다.

‘말하는 나무들’ 프로젝트는 전 세계 젊은 건축집단의 네트워크를 가동해, 나무를 주제로 독창적인 작업을펼친다. 여러 팀이 나무라는 익숙한 공통의 주제 탐구에 나서, 각자의 작업에 드러난 유사성과 차이를 통해 인터넷 시대에 발달된 새로운 디지털 지리를 지도화하기 시작한다.

‘말하는 나무들’ 참여 팀인 Perennial Commons, (앱)노멀+, 스터프 디자인, 원애프터는 베니스의 한국관 외부 수목 디지털 지도를 제작하고, 건축적 민속지학, 신화, 신탁, 베니스, 세계의 인접지 사례, 표면과 질감, 소재 연구, 서울, 현장 기지, 장치, 과학과 자연과 기술과 건축의 교차점 등의 연구를 다룬다.

On Saturday 25th September the Cucina Semi Aquatica opened its online doors for a lunch and dinner cooking workshop which focused on introducing productive landscapes, existing between land and water, through the medium of food.
We cooked together via Zoom and the recording of this session will be available soon on Future School website.

On the day, we created three simple dishes - one starter, a main and a dessert - inspired by the Venice island of St Erasmo and the Liverpool and Leeds Canal.

The recipes we explores departed and took inspiration from these two very different landscapes, looking at their history and evolution across time. Although the meal featured ingredients which are very much local to these two sites, we invite everyone to recreate the recipes with the ingredients representing territories between land and water which are more local to them.

On this page you can find a list of ingredients - and guidelines on how to find local equivalents - the full cooking process and a list of utensils you might need if you plan to create the three recipes at home.

To share with us your adapted recipes, you can email carlotta@publicworksgroup.net

Thank you!

We have in our practice and teaching over many years developed a trajectory of projects investigated how global issues are affecting local conditions. By mapping, analysing and understanding responses and tactics to the global crisis in a local context, we have explored how local ways to operate could catalyse change within global transformations affecting urban and rural areas today.

As an example of this endeavour here we describe a project on the city of Gothenburg.

We have investigated transient edge conditions of harbour cities in relation to climate change, rising water levels, dynamic water conditions, flooding strategies and shifting economies. Studying the dynamics of the flooding in Gothenburg, we have explored the threats and problems the city and its built environment are exposed to, due to rising water levels. We have explored natural water edge ecologies; the logics and dynamics of ecosystems that are dependent on and profit from flooding and fluctuating water levels, imagining the riverbanks as a potential productive edge and water infrastructure system. How could this system be developed to be integrated in and become part of the city, and contribute to ways of living and working, production and recreation?

In our work and investigations of Gothenburg, a city which has undergone major changes during the past decades, have been focusing on developing alternative future scenarios and identities for the city, departing from its relationship to water. From being a significant harbour and industrial city, then turning into a city with an industry in decline, Gothenburg shows a high rate of unemployment, socio-cultural and racial tensions, a shortage of housing, and is one of the most exposed and threatened cities from rising sea levels and flooding in Sweden. The City Planning Office, in collaboration with property developers and the industry, have developed future plans for Centrala Älvstaden – an urban regeneration project for the region and the city of Gothenburg, branding, densifying and changing the structure and character of large areas of the city through 15,000 new dwellings and 40,000 new work opportunities for the north and south river-banks located in high-risk flooding zones.

Departing from the understanding of the coastal edge as a system, a productive industrial edge and an operative infrastructure, we developed propositions for an urban network – a series of interconnected cross-programmed spaces and architectural interventions – where the flooding water could be considered as a resource for the future of Gothenburg. Based on the model of a network, its physical as well as non-physical organisational pattern is an urban planning strategy in which the relationships and connections between actors, programmes, activities and spaces can be understood as both spatial and programmatic. The network is developed as a flexible series of self-sufficient spaces for fluctuating flows and uses, making it adaptable to future challenges and opportunities. Applying a wider and softer notion of infrastructure or infrastructural ecology, this added layer of intensity, enhancing the production, interaction, exchange and sharing of resources and space, could make it less vulnerable and less dependent on high technology and advanced infrastructure. Programming of spaces and architectural interventions, such as floating markets, biogas parks, waste water gardens, algae farms, and osmotic power plants, have been focusing on self-sufficiency in terms of energy and resources, local production and recycling, commonly shared, owned, used and run by local communities. Imagining Gothenburg as a city on water, where the rising water is considered a productive and common asset rather than a threat, we believe is critical for a sustainable development of the city.
