During the Opening Week at the Cultural Hub of Tallinn, TAB will hold a two-day “EDIBLE” Symposium, which aims to generate genuine interdisciplinary debates. Participating speakers come from fields ranging from architecture to design, from textile technologies to economy. The list of key speakers includes Beatriz Colomina, Claudia Pasquero (ecoLogicStudio), Philippe Rahm (Philippe Rahm architectes), and many more. Complete list of participants: https://2022.tab.ee/programme/edible.
Beatriz Colomina is is the Howard Crosby Butler Professor of the History of Architecture and the co-director of the Media and Modernity program at Princeton University. She writes and curates on questions of design, art, sexuality and media. She has curated a number of exhibitions and has written several books. In 2016 she was co-curator of the 3rdIstanbul Design Biennial. Her latest books are X-Ray Architecture (Lars Muller, 2019) and Radical Pedagogies (MIT, 2022).
The Symposium brings together prominent architects and theorists with environmental philosophers, scientists and entrepreneurs to discuss topics including The Farm and the City, Interspecies Alliances, From Waste to Matter, Slow Buildings and Circular Blocks, among others.
From architecture that makes food, to architecture that is eaten away, participants will be called to participate in a lively curated conversation on designing the lifecycles of our built environment, as well as new principles of inhabitation in urban environments.
