Scroll to explore Total Space

Total Space explores interdisciplinary exchanges between the fields of architecture, urban planning, anthropology and systems theory. The core premise is that architecture and urban planning can be understood as ecological systems. The point of departure becomes interactive networks, rather than discrete objects and domains. From the first propositions for networked cities and megastructures in the 1950s and 60s, up to developments such as smart cities and virtual territories today, the concept of a total, all-encompassing space remains a recurrent motif.
