TEDxUCL – MARCOS CRUZ – LIVING BUILDINGS – ARCHITECTURE’S PATH TO ECOLOGY

Marcos Cruz is the Director of the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. His investigations about Neoplasmatic Architecture, which focused on a contemporary discussion about the body and the impact of bio-technology on architecture, won the RIBA President’s Research Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis in 2008. Cruz’s research concerns the different conceptions of flesh, the place of the body in architecture and our understanding of ‘urbanism’. His research is dedicated to a future vision of the body in architecture, questioning our ‘human flesh’ and its altered relationship with a new contemporary ‘architectural flesh’.
