Abstract

Within the last few years, dominant understandings of the term ‘post-anthropocene’ have been routinely applied and sometimes wrongly assumed to refer to a future without humans – the default assumption is that post-anthropocene architecture is nothing more than spaces devoid of people. Rather than a world in which humans are the pinnacle species, we contemplate the emergence of multi-species typologies that advantage and potentially rehabilitate other, vast diminishing life forms. This project extends and develops the question of what an inclusive architecture of the post-anthropocene could look like. It will bring a more diverse set of voices, positions and knowledge(s) to develop the discourse writers/practitioners critically exploring the decolonization of space, environmental racism, food security, post-materialisms and other climate-critical concerns.
