How to represent and communicate the complexity of the metabolism of cities as well as the environmental problems associated with it, without falling into a moralizing discourse. This reflection originating from the scientific world has now been adopted by the world of art, architecture and design. The urgency of generating effective modes of representation that can support a change in societal, economic and political behavior is more relevant than ever. This reflection, the CIVA and Aristide Athanassiadis (researcher at ULB-BATir & Metabolism of Cities) wanted to share it with the students of the School of Graphic Research (erg).
The projects were supervised by Françoise Tahon, Giovanni Guarini and Manu Blondiau within the framework of the media workshop (2nd year Bachelor of Ecole de Recherche Graphique)
