Cycle de conférences

Kenny Cupers, professor, University of Basel

This talk will explore the relationship between environmental determinism, as a key logic of European empire, and environmental determination, as a conviction that undergirds architecture and planning in the twentieth century. Focusing on German colonial interventions in Southern Africa and Central Europe and their repercussions for architectural modernism, it proposes to conceptualize modernism from the perspective of determinism’s afterlives.
