Emergent Techno-Utopias and the Vernacular

Disconnection from history and the past is one of the main reasons behind the societal crisis of the Western world, according to philosopher Kornilios Kastoriadis. The talk emphasizes the priority to reestablish continuity with tradition and examines this need through the lens of the built environment and physical space. Particularly, it examines how future architecture can promote behavior and social responsibility connected to vernacular tradition, and it reveals examples and potential directions of this thesis in the emergent techno-utopias.
