With Matthew Gandy, Professor of Geography and
Director of the UCL Urban Laboratory
18.00 | Lecture Hall, Architectural Association
36 Bedford Square WC1B 3ES
Part of the Landscape Urbanism Lecture series
This lecture will explore a conceptual terrain that has at various times promised interconnections between diverse fields of urban thought ranging from the interpretation of post-industrial landscapes to uncertainties over the status of the 'post-human' subject. The history of the cyborg concept will be illustrated with various examples drawn from architecture, cinema and the visual arts. In particular, the lecture will suggest a tension between threatening and liberatory understandings of recent entanglements between the body and technology in urban space.
Details of each event will be posted in the landscape urbanism blog shortly before the day of the lectures:
