Lecture "Materialisms" – New Material Histories of Architecture: Kim Förster & Sarah Nichols
In our autumn talks on "Materialisms", we will discuss issues of space and its material articulations as well as phenomena of immaterialities, be it through emergent fields of political, social, digital or ecological changes – or simply by questioning architecture’s traditional position within nature and culture.
Kim Förster, Lecturer in Architectural Studies at the University of Manchester and Sarah Nichols, Assistant Professor Assistant professor of Architecture at Rice University in Houston, Texas, will be discussing what the history of architecture does look like when the extended trajectories of building materials, are made the subject of research, writing, and pedagogy. Building architecture requires materials. This truism links architecture to its hinterlands— forests, quarries, mines, oil wells, laboratories, production plants, transport and storage infrastructure—as well as to the businesses, knowledge, and labor that turn matter into materials and materials into buildings.
