Rewilding: Nature cannot wait

For the fifth talk in our Architecture Anew series, we discuss the rewilding movement and how it asks us to see things differently.

This a recording of a virtual event held on 13 July 2021.

The rewilding movement asks us to shift our perspective from humans as distinct and separated from nature, to recognise that we are part of a complex ecosystem with other lifeforms. Therefore, instead of designing human-centric spaces, the built environment sector should be creating places for all life forms to thrive.

What are some of the ways that we can rewild our mindsets, everyday life, and architectural or design practice? This talk will showcase big and small ideas to help you re-connect with nature and start creating spaces for all human and non-human life.
