François Roche talk is cancelled.
As part of our Visiting School programme, Animalesque organises open-to-all talks at ANCB Aedes the Metropolitan Forum. In these talks, our key guest tutors will share perspectives on animals as part of our future city systems. What can be their their role in pollination, vivid ecosystems and food production? What could or should be their relation to us, humans? How can we life side by side, or even interwoven, in a mutual beneficiary way?

Ricardo de Ostos creates speculative fictions that envision architectural projects in shifting environmental and cultural contexts. Reacting to contemporary displacement patterns, his publication Scavengers and Other Creatures in Promised Lands is a provocative architectural exploration of how radical cultural practices and time-based spaces enable a new set of architectural responses.

Recently we were running a three week Seminar at TU Berlin – CHORA Conscious City, in which 24 students were working in groups to create nesting structures for bees, using natural fiber rope and bees wax. The six nesting structures are now placed in the garden at AEDES Architekturforum and soon our beekeeper Erika Mayr will help us with getting the prototypes occupied by bees.
