Last week we were invited to the final jury of “Unorthodox Arch Practices” directed by Juan Herreros in Columbia GSAAP together with Ana Jara from Arteria. Unorthodox architectural practices are really needed at a time when we have to rethink our actions on a damaged planet. Looking at the students’ proposals we reflected on how important it is to be aware of our ethical and ecological commitments when developing our architectural approaches. How important it is to avoid extractivist protocols in our designs and in our own or other bodies. It was a pleasure to think together!
