Theo Deutinger will present his recent cartography and information visualizations related to our latest phase of globalization, interconnecting social, political, and cultural determinants with design. An architect, writer, and designer of socio-cultural studies, he is founder and head of TD, an office that combines architecture with research, visualization, and conceptual thinking in all scale levels, from global planning, urban master plans, architecture to graphical and journalistic work.
This lecture is part of the Berlage Keynotes, an ongoing lecture series by internationally prominent practitioners, designers, and thinkers. A selection of speakers from different disciplines, including architects, artists, filmmakers, and theorists, present how their work engages with contemporary design issues and debates. Organized and hosted by the Berlage, the series is part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment’s Thursday evening public program. This fall semester, speakers include Baukunst, Béka & Lemoine, Theo Deutinger, Flores & Prats, Adriaan Geuze, Gigon/Guyer, Piovenefabi, and Studio Gang.
