The IAAC BITS journal “Black Ecologies” is out now
The journal collects material stimulating, promoting and developing research in the diverse areas of Advanced Architecture through a multi-disciplinary approach.
The IAAC BITS journal is a collective container of knowledge developed by the Advanced Architecture Group of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.
With the 9th issue, Black Ecologies, IAAC BITS is entering a new editorial phase pushing research, generating dialogue and presenting novel ideas and solutions for the current global challenges.
Black Ecologies displays an architecture based not only on processes and performances, but also on specific, literal and hyperrealist protocols; they do not find shelter in abstraction, history or language, but on the conformation of operative “assemblages”.
In this issue the term “Black Ecologies” is a reference to the expression “Dark Ecologies” – coined by Timothy Morton in 2007. It translates a new interest aimed at exploring a “New Nature”, not only related to architectural space but in the framework of the environment as a whole, not necessarily from the standpoint of the generalised vision of the “ecological”.
