Copy Culture

Design culture is obsessed with authenticity. Copying is often deemed reprehensible, and borrowing another’s idea or incorporating elements of his or her work into one’s own is viewed as a sign of creative impoverishment. But is this right? What’s wrong with interpreting someone else’s creation? Musicians have been quoting each other’s work for centuries – why shouldn’t the same thing happen in other creative disciplines? Where does  quotation end and copying begin?

GRÜNtopia

We are very honored that Renate Künast, politician for the Bündnis 90/Die Grünen and Member of German Parliament is opening Embassy Lab GRÜNtopia on 22 June 2018.

Green spaces are essential for the quality of life, wellbeing, and health of urban populations. Today, the focus on and interest in green urban spaces is increasing thanks to initiatives working toward Healthy Cities, environmental justice, food security, and strengthening local communities.

Current issues such as climate change, the rapid loss of biodiversity, and accelerating ecological concerns urge us to reconsider our relation to nature. Facing the challenges of the Urban Age, we rethink the juxtaposition of nature versus artifact by integrating plant material in our architectural surroundings, merging nature with the built environment.
