Non-Extractive Architecture: On Designing without Depletion

Non-Extractive Architecture will transform Palazzo delle Zattere into a live research platform focused on rethinking the balance between the built and natural environments, the role of technology and politics in future material economies, and the responsibility of the architect as an agent of transformation. The conference will highlight the research threads that will be developed as part of the Non-Extractive Architecture programming at three scales: from materials, to alternative architectural practices to a planetary scale.

Organised by V-A-C, Non-Extractive Architecture: On Designing without Depletion will take place on Friday May 21 on the occasion of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
