Due to the ecological destruction of the countryside, biodiversity in cities is now often much greater than in rural environments. As evolutionary ‘hotspots’, species in urban environments have to adapt rapidly to new conditions. Moreover, encounters with ever-new species leads to the emergence of changing food chains. So far, this diversity is hardly reflected in current design practice, and cities have been developed almost exclusively as human habitats.
Multispecies Urbanism in the Neuhaus Curriculum
Activities in the context of this learning trail
Individual routes have been mapped out through the rooms spaces? and the Neuhaus programme based on a number of overarching themes. The ‘learning trails’ enable participants to discover how the chosen subject manifests itself in different ways in different programmes, and how it connects with other learning trails.
