We are six architecture students who take part in the project "Design in Crisis: Sensing like an animal" and presenting the experiences and results here on the website.
Building a more convivial world with animals – something we do when designing parks or urban green spaces – does not only entail ethical or political commitments, but different design practices and toolkits. In this course we will undertake a collective exploration of animal sensory practices, in order to reappreciate the city and the built environment in a different light.
Using a case-scenario approach, we will learn from these critical experiences to collectively prototype a new architectural toolkit to make us ‘design like animals.’
