PODCAST // Architecture Talk

Narrative, Fiction, OOO, and the Making of the Architectural Meme as criticism with Benedikt Hartl and Ryan Scavnicky



Very happy to be part in the most influential, and most heard academic podcast "Architecture Talk" by Vikram Prakash, Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA.


This week we continue our ongoing miniseries Architecture in the Time of Coronavirus with two distinct, yet parallel discussions. The first conversation, with Benedikt Hartl of Opposite Office, probes the possibilities in future-driven narrative architecture to achieve sustainability and resiliency in the face of climate change, pandemics, and the unknown. The second, with Ryan Scavnicky of Extra Office, discusses the internet meme as a tool for critiquing and reframing the culture around architecture and looks to Object-Oriented Ontology as a philosophical framework for speculation in architecture.


Thank you Vikram for your time and your nice thoughts about our work!

I also love the drawing by Tori Haynes which describes our work very authentic!
