Lukas Feireiss

Curator and editor, die gestalten verlag (dvg), Berlin (Germany) With a population of six billion and an increasingly complex technology, civilization has become a force akin to nature, causing far-reaching changes to earth?s ecosystem. Confronted with the challenges of creating space in this altered environment, how are architects and city planners dealing with problems requiring expertise beyond the confines of their disciplines? Can they draw upon the past, current and future visions of the built environment from art, architecture, literature and film? Lukas Feireiss is a teacher, writer and curator who is involved in the discussion and mediation of architecture, art and media beyond its disciplinary boundaries. He attained his graduate education in Religious Studies, Ethnology and Philosophy. His recent publication Architecture of Change. Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment (Berlin: die Gestalten Verlag, 2008) addresses the issue of sustainability by presenting architectural projects from around the globe that combine creativity, scientific knowledge, technical innovation, social engagement and a strong sense of responsibility to address environmental challenges. Furthermore he is the editor of Strike a Pose! Eccentric Architecture and Spectacular Spaces (Berlin: ibid, 2008), Spacecraft. Fleeting Architecture and Hideouts (Berlin: ibid, 2007) and Game Set and Match II. On Computer Games, Advanced Geometries and Digital Technologies (Rotterdam: Episode, 2006).
