Stream 04, The Paradoxes of the Living


client: PCA-STREAM

We collaborated with PCA-Stream on Stream 04, a book-magazine published by the Parisian architectural agency. The third issue of Stream was devoted to our entry into the Anthropocene era, a new geological era in which human activity has become the predominant geophysical force. Stream 04 proposes to go beyond this simple awareness and explore man's attempts to redefine his ways of living and building the city by making nature a model, a tool or a partner.

We organised, filmed and supervised the editing of interviews in the U.S. with : Timothy Morton, philosopher ; Joseph Paradiso, professor at the MIT Media Lab, director of the Responsive Environments Group ; Anita Berrizbeitia, chair of the landscape architecture department at Harvard University ; Graham Harman, philosopher and professor at SCI-Arc, LA ; Ariane Lourie Harrisson, architect and professor at Yale University ; Donald Ingber, director of the Wyss Institute at Harvard University ; David Edwards, founder at Le Laboratoire, Cambridge ; Carlo Ratti, architect and director of the MIT Senseable City Lab ; Hernan Diaz Alonso, architect and director of SCI-Arc, LA ; Jeffrey Schnapp, ; Michael Speaks, Michael Schellenberger, environmental policy expert ; Keller Easterling, architect, writer and professor at Yale University ; Ted Nordhaus, co-founder of the Breakthrough Institute and Primavera de Filippi, blockchain researcher at Harvard University. 

Back in Paris, we also contributed to the organisation of interviews with : Laurent Le Bon, curator ; Gilles Clément, landscaper and author ; François Képès, cellular biologist and Ariane Michel, artist and filmmaker.
