Design Earth in conversation with Tei Carpenter

Organized by Tei Carpenter and David Benjamin as a part of Advanced Studio IV, in conjunction with the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture's "Power: Infrastructure in America" research initiative.

Design Earth is a collaborative practice led by El Hadi Jazairy and Rania Ghosn. The office’s work engages the geographic to open up a range of aesthetic and political concerns for architecture and urbanism. Literally, ‘earth-writing’ from the Greek geo (earth) and graphia (writing), the practice of making geographies involves the coupled undertakings of “writing about,” projecting or representing the earth and also “writing on,” marking, forming or presenting again a world.
