Eco-Visionaries will showcase architects and artists who are proposing cutting-edge responses which challenge conventional notions of sustainability. The exhibition will feature a range of international practitioners, such as Unknown Fields, a nomadic design research studio with an intrepid approach to research. They travel to 'alien landscapes, industrial ecologies and precarious wildernesses' such as the Texaco oil fields of the Ecuadorian Amazon and the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone to make films and objects which explore the connections between these isolated locales and modern cities.
The exhibition also includes work by multi-award winning Spanish architect Andrés Jaques, who explores how architecture shapes societies with his studio Office for Political Innovation, and work by French urban design studio HeHe who combine theatre, engineering and design in their practices. Pressing issues will be interrogated across a vast spectrum of mediums including photography, film, sculpture, installation, architectural models and digital media and will invite viewers to envision alternative futures where a balanced relationship with our environment can be achieved.
