Join us for the Sydney launch of Lydia Kallipoliti‘s award-winning publication, The Architecture of Closed Worlds: Or, What is the Power of Shit?
What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each was conceived as a closed system: partial reconstructions of the world in time and in space. Featuring an archive of 41 historical living prototypes from 1927 to the present – an unexplored genealogy of closed resource regeneration systems – Closed Worlds, curated by Lydia Kallipoliti, documents a disciplinary transformation and the rise of a new environmental consensus.
Closed Worlds was originally commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York and is presented by UTS ART in partnership with the UTS School of Architecture.
