Under the theme Edible. Or, the Architecture of Metabolism, the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2022 will explore ways in which the natural world can inform the circular economy, highlighting frameworks and logic that can be transferred to the domains of architecture, design and urbanism. Curated by architects Lydia Kallipoliti and Areti Markopoulou in collaboration with co-curator Ivan Sergejev, Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2022 aims to empower architects, planners and environmental practitioners to develop a proactive stance on architecture’s expressive capacity to perform circular operations, to produce resources – generate food and energy- as well as to decompose itself.”
EDIBLE aims to empower architects, planners, and environmental designers to develop a proactive stance on architecture’s expressive capacity to perform circular operations, to produce resources -generate food and energy- as well as to decompose itself. During the pandemic, the question of ‘where our food comes from’ has become critical. The fragility of our production processes and the mobility networks that transport commodities and food, urge new forms of local resource production and the design of circular economies.
