As the world moves on, whirling in absurdity, theory offers an approach providing a way out of direct confrontation by analysing and contextualizing topics immanent in day to day life, yet for some more abstract than for others. Nevertheless, sometimes one finds oneself more engaged on an emotional level. The desire increases to grasp in order to satisfy mind and soul and body equally. Artistic strategies – condensing perception, abstraction and immediacy – present opportunities to sit back and receive a message that can possibly change perspectives onto circumstances.

Dialogue and siftings from Portland, Oregon focusing on landscape architecture, sustainable urbanism, vegetated architecture, urban agriculture, living walls, green roofs, ecological planning and landscape urbanism theory.

l’organisation d.u.M.s a décidé de mener plus loin ses réflexions sur l’aménagement du temps sans pour autant entrer dans une étude théorique complexe.

F.A.D. is the work of Brett Milligan in open collaboration with other entities.  F.A.D. explores landscape and urbanism through a range of writings, experiences and research methods.

PROGRAM is a nonprofit project aimed at testing the disciplinary boundaries of architecture through collaborations with other fields. Initiated in 2006 by Carson Chan and Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga, PROGRAM provides a discursive platform for artists, architects, critics and curators to explore ideas through exhibitions, performances, workshops, lectures, and residencies. PROGRAM intends to enrich and broaden our definitions of architecture, and to challenge traditional, domesticated modes of architectural practice and representation. Developing each project independent of an overarching agenda, PROGRAM is striving to diversify the ways we understand and make architecture. Central to our project is to engage the discourse with emerging creative processes that activate the space between pure theoretical research, professional praxis and architecture’s social role.
Occupying the ground level of former Russian Hotel Newa PROGRAM’s location in Berlin includes an exhibition space, offices, a reading room, studio spaces, and a residency.
