Event description

Description

More than climates will change in this century. To begin to address the salient environmental, social and political quandaries of this century, many of the basic theoretical and practical assumptions about what we think architecture design is and does will also fundamentally change. Moe will address Alfred North Whitehead’s theory of the “Fallacy of Misplaced Concreteness,” especially as it is evidenced in modern architectural production. This Fallacy is the source of architecture’s manifold unequal ecological and social exchanges, its environmental ambivalences, and the misdirection of its faulty environmental efforts. A cogent response to this Fallacy will necessarily question the very means we use to design and describe architecture as a terrestrial endeavor within the storms of this century. Example responses will be drawn from research, pedagogy and practice.


Kiel Moe is a practicing architect and the Gerald Sheff Chair in Architecture at McGill University.
