Archifutures Vol. 5: Apocalypse
Edited by Sophie Lovell and Fiona Shipwright, &beyond

We live in challenging times. There is no denying that portents pertaining to the “end of the world”, in which we are all threatened by the impending cessation of our existence, are all around. Nor that threats to our planet and our own existence are overwhelmingly real. However, “apocalypse” – usually understood as a radical change, after which things will never be the same—is actually an insidious process, not an event. But despite the implied drama of “apocalypse”, the reality is actually far more mundane: surviving it is not about building bunkers, it is about building resilience.

This volume intends to deconstruct and remould the notion of “apocalypse”; to neutralise its drama and to reconsider what it means to live in an age of revelation. What are the futures that these young practitioners aim to reveal? What are the new prototypical mechanisms of resilience and survival under construction as we speak? How will they manifest themselves in the built environment?

Contributors include: Srecko Horvat, Bora Baboci, Daniel Trilling, Anastassia Smirnova, TAB Collective, Maite Borjabad, Trajna Collective, Stephan Truby, Tinatin Gurgenidze, Martin Pohl, Jason Hilgefort, and more TBC.
