Nicolay Boyadjiev (b. 1987) is an architect, strategic designer and creative director working between Montreal and Moscow. He is currently co-director of The Terraforming think tank, Strelka Institute's interdisciplinary postgraduate education program.
In this talk, Strelka Institute Program Co-Director Nicolay Boyadjiev responds to CAF x 2021's yearly theme by addressing care and caretaking through their "infrastructural" dimension, discussing how long-term enabling technical systems of care and collective networks of support are embedded within the artificial landscapes we call "cities", and how such interdependence shifts our perspective on these concepts and expands the required scope, scale and agency of our ongoing tending to the built environment. More specifically, he will present the conceptual drivers, design-research method and latest cinematic projects outcomes emerging from The Terraforming, Strelka Institute's postgraduate interdisciplinary think tank investigating the past and future role of cities as the planetary network by which humans occupy the Earth's surface.
The event is organised by the Master's Programme Urbanism & Societal Change at The Royal Danish Academy - Architecture, Design, Conservation. Moderated by Christine Bjerke.
Tickets are free, just show up.
In order to change how we design and construct our built environment, we need to understand the impact of our decisions beyond the spreadsheet. This applies to how, where and with what we make our buildings.

Debat mellem førende praktikere og forskere indenfor biobaserede byggematerialer og fremtidens grønne byudvikling.
If we are to meet the challenges of climate change, we must act radically different than today. Artistic research practices, which support an attentive and holistic approach, offer a methodological tool box which can bring to light relationships across cultural and ecological predicaments.
How do architects and urbanists develop projects in a time where the future seems even more unpredictable than ever before? In this session we will explore approaches and methodologies applied in research and practices that address planetary life conditions not yet manifested but to be expected such as sea level rises, weather changes etc.
