Environments of Extraction
Storefront for Art and Architecture
97 Kenmare Street, New York, NY
February 21, 2014
Join us for a discussion with Neeraj Bhatia, Dr. Paul Fennelly, Rob Holmes, and Justin Fowler on the occasion of the launch of The Petropolis of Tomorrow.
Resource extraction and urbanism have always had an intimate love/hate relationship. In the past fifty years, we have witness this relationship yield a series of global infrastructures and cities that are increasingly impacting and influencing all aspects of the globe. As these infrastructures, landscapes and territories become inadvertently integrated into the contemporary city, how can they be reconceived to address issues of urbanism that sit outside the logistics of resource extraction? During this panel discussion, we will examine the role of resource extraction on urbanism and question how design can hybridize these infrastructures with the competing forces of economics, geopolitics, cultural values, and ecologies.
