Energyscapes: Christine von Raven, Carola Hein & Philipp Misselwitz TALK (DE)

18:30 Uhr, Vitra Schaudepot
Energyscapes emerge where energy is part of our urban, rural, and natural landscapes. Beyond visible energy infrastructures like power stations, wind farms, or solar panels, the term also refers to the invisible energy flows passing through buildings and includes distribution networks as well as renewable energy sources. Our special guests this evening are three leading architecture and energy experts who will share and discuss their different perspectives: Professor Carola Hein is head of History of Architecture and Urban Planning at Delft University of Technology, full professor at Leiden University, and holder of the UNESCO Chair for Water, Ports, and Historic Cities; climate engineer and integral planner Christine von Raven develops and implements resilient urban planning projects; and Professor Philipp Misselwitz is an architect and urban researcher with a focus on the effects of socio-ecological crises on architecture and urban planning who develops new, systemic approaches for climate-positive and circular building.
