As follow-up on the summer school ‘Tropical Architecture in the Anthropocene’, which took place in March 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, the block seminar will focus on the application of investigations on climate-adapted architecture for a prototypical design of a low-income housing unit (including outside areas).

Besides the technological aspects of sustainable low-cost construction the block seminar will also address the relationship between habitation and nature in view of the new paradigm shift as it occurred with the proclamation of the new geological age of the Anthropocene.

While the prototypical design proposal will be adapted to the conditions of tropical climate it will also raise the question how future habitats and living models in the Anthropocene will look like.
