To the Natural City Symposium and Art Exhibition

The symposium will explore the following topic areas:


   the history of the idea, and of the ‘natural’ & ‘green’ city in its
   history; and how this has manifested up to the present day;

   the urban (“city”) today as a non-place and ecological hazard;

   the natural/green city of the immediate future, and related to this,

   new places for new communities.

It will be a combination of short presentations and moderated discussions,
which will be published. The event shall be recorded and streamed live.

The event will take place on the weekend of September 1 & 2, 2023, at the
Foundation’s base in Karlsruhe, Germany. The venue is located within a
landscape protection area outside the city, has a large garden and a villa
from the 1950s with the possibility of an overnight stay. The symposium is
organised in partnership with Jeff Klotz



   Barbara Tagliolini, an Italian anthropologist, will report about a
   public garden of Roman origin, refurbished and reused by different
   multi-ethnic communities;

   Sam Olshin, US-architect, will report about new communal place-making
   for different stakeholders, using the space already existing in urban areas;

   Tim Kaysers, member of the chamber of Architects of Baden-Württemberg,
   will present a completely new approach on the topic of the “green” city
