Closed Worlds: Encounters That Never Happened

Me (as Niel Armstrong) at 14:05

Closed Worlds: Encounters That Never Happened

The image of Earth from outer space was highly anticipated throughout the 1960s, and inspired a great deal of wonder in the general population. This iconic image reached the apex of its symbolism in 1968, through the famous Earthrise series taken by Apollo 8. Portraying mankind entrapped in the finite space of a sphere, the image of Earth as perceived from space may be accountable, in part, for a feeling of anxiety in our collective cultural imagination. It resulted in the development of broad literature that projected plans for our future survival within what Buckminster Fuller famously called our ‘spaceship earth’. Reyner Banham, with an environmental bubble; Hans Hollein, with a pill illustrating that “all is architecture”; Jacques Cousteau, with the Conshelf project that explored the inner space of the ocean; and Walt Disney, with EPCOT as a reconstruction of a miniaturized and idealized world, among others, have contributed substantially and in various ways to the discourse of closed worlds.

Feb 27th 12-6 pm, The Cooper Union. Encounters That Never Happened is presented in conjunction with Closed Worlds, an exhibition on view at Storefront for Art and Architecture.

There is no Planet B

Planet B
There is no Planet B: A Call for Architects to Be Agents of Social Change
Peder Anker, Louise Harpman, Mitchell Joachim
Climate change effects pose drastic challenges to the architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design communities. The immediate response has been a turn toward a host of energy-saving technologies or behavior modifications. What has rarely been addressed, however, is the problem of scale. How can the designer ensure that global solutions do not come at the expense of local traditions, cultures, and environments? By placing human coherent, emotional, technological, and social needs at the center of our environmental concerns, we propose a new Global Design initiative.
