Malka Architecture / The Green Machine, 2014
In MAAT / Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology’s, first collaboration with several European museums, the Eco-Visionaries: Art and Architecture after the Anthropocene project is centered on current practices that propose critical and creative visions vis-à-vis the environmental transformations that are disturbing our planet.

At a moment when climate changes are even more widely felt, Eco-Visionaries launch the debate on a vast array of questions associated with the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action. With contributions from over thirty five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon is the first and most wide-ranging of the four exhibitions that will appear simultaneously in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.
