Warsaw: Energy Landscapes and Energy Transitions

A screening of selected Video Essays on the Energy Future of Warsaw

In the late summer of 2022 students of the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture (CH) documented the current energy landscape of Warsaw and imagined ways for its transition towards a carbon free future. The fragmented quality of the city fabric, its strong infrastructural imprint and its continuing reliance on fossil energy make it an intriguing object of study. Building upon emblematic ethnographic descriptions of urban ecologies by Boyarsky and Banham, student groups of two developed their take on the energy ecologies found in the city of Warsaw in the format of a Video Essay.

The introduction by Prof. Roesler to the notion of Energy Landscapes will be followed by a screening of selected Video Essays. The evening concludes with a discussion on Warsaw’s energy future among invited guests and the audience.
