CUE5 2015

CUE5 | Critical Urban Ecology @ UoB Research Festival

Wednesday, 5.11.14 University of Brighton | Grand Parade | BN2 0JY | Boardroom & Waste House


The CUE Critical Urban Ecology events explore the city from an ecological perspective, as an environment that is socially constructed but is at the same time the product of ecological and material processes that incorporate and exceed the social and the human. By bringing together architectural theorists and practitioners, artists, philosophers, and other thinkers and makers, CUE aims to connect theoretical and actual territories, ideas and matter, objects and subjects. Previous events have examined conceptual, interdisciplinary, territorial and spatial dimensions of urban ecologies; this year’s event will look at different forms of research in and beyond the urban environment.
