The urban foodscape – from field to fork – has long been shaped by decisions taken either in the board rooms of large international corporations or by sector-bound national government agencies. Over the past decade, designers, architects, and city planners have started using their distinct talents and competencies to help communities restore its civic and ecological role. In this talk, based on her book Urban Food Planning: Seeds of Transition in the Global North, Dr. Rositsa Ilieva will contend that, over the past decade, designers, architects, and city planners have started using their distinct talents and competencies to help communities restore urban foodscapes’ civic and ecological role and dismantle the notion of food as a mere commodity, far-removed from the professions claiming expertise in the built environment.

When we think of Venice, we think of a city in the sea, surrounded by water. And yet, before the modern era, the city had no source of fresh water other than the rain from heaven or barges from the mainland. Therein lies the paradox: Venice is in the water and has no water. This lecture addresses how Venetians rose to the challenge by creating a unique system of water collection, and a unique genre of public art: the Venetian wellhead. It addresses as well a different challenge that came with the expansion of the Venetian empire: the gift of running water and the need to harness it. Again, the Venetians seized the initiative and created fountains that transformed urban spaces from the Terraferma to the Stato da Mar into places of encounter and aesthetic delight. Finally, this lecture explores the afterlife of the Venetian wellhead. Speaker Patricia Fortini Brown is Professor Emerita at Princeton University and Director of Save Venice Inc.

An oral history film done with a twist: architects reflect on their initiations into the culture of architecture education in a kind of ritual performance. Asked to recall vivid memories and relevant experiences from their education, they perform a few physical actions and tell their stories. Although filmed in front of a neutral background, specificities quickly emerge: a wide range of responses are juxtaposed, revealing essential preoccupations within three generations of architects. This is not just text as information: you see the person and you hear their story. 53 min.

Berlin Calling tells the story of the Berlin Wall's momentous crash through the divided city's street artists and punk rockers, impresarios and underground agitators. It is a chronicle of 1989's "peaceful revolution," which upended communism in East Germany, and the wild, permissive post-Wall years of artistic ferment and pirate utopias, when protest and idealism, subaltern techno clubs and sprawling squats were the order of the day.
