This 6 month project brought together architects, theorists, and scholars to investigate the relationship between the Anthropocene and peripheral urban space, its typologies, and forms of development. It produced a portfolio of analytical, interpretive, and speculative drawings; a comprehensive literature review; founded an international network entitled Peripherocene. It concluded with a symposium, presentation of a suite of position papers, a writing workshop to draft an external funding application, and a plan for future events.
