Designing Geopolitics 2, an intimate interdisciplinary symposium on policy and projects visualizing a recomposed global landscape of sovereignties, infrastructures, and identities, this Saturday at UC San Diego. Designing Geopolitics 2 will extend the critical questions: What is the territory of the Cloud Polis? What alien models of sovereignty require invention, revitalization or redesign? What is the role of speculative design thinking in prototyping real alternatives? and more.

Massive addressability is a defining characteristic of our rapidly accelerating global network of connections, and emerges when cities, buildings, materials, objects, creatures, sites, books, words, molecules, all act as agents in a global, reciprocal ontology of things that can find each other. Across longer timeframes—decades, centuries, or millennia—this set of relations inevitably scales up to the post-planetary. We cannot think of design a century from now without taking it off planet. The consequences of this leap are profound. . . .

Street Views: Exploring our connection to the built environment through documentaries, narratives and experimental works.
Pedro Urano’s meditation on architecture and the human conditions is first and foremost a cinematic portrait of the University Hospital in Rio de Janeiro, a structure that uniquely embodies modernism’s utopic project and its ruin. Urano’s camera alternates between fluidity and stasis, juxtaposing tableaus of decay with the daily activity of a working hospital.
Followed by a Q&A with Ed Keller and Carla Leitao (AUM Studio), moderated by Anthony Titus.
