Crisis? What Crisis?

The second talk in ARCHIDES Public Lecture Series of Fall 2020 was held on Thursday, December 10th, presented by Florian Busch- Founder of Florian Busch Architects- talked on the potential of architecture in the context of crises.


The world is currently experiencing that a crisis, once declared, can become the most powerful catalyst for change. Urgency triggers action at a speed and scale otherwise inconceivable. Japan’s history of relentlessly recurring disasters has made the embracing of the opportunities of every crisis both necessary and innate. Instability has become a fertile ground for the new, impermanence a strategy, and diversity an ongoing outcome.

Weaving connections between destruction and adaptation, continuity, and resilience, urbanism and food, the lecture explores the potential for architecture in the context of crises.
