The studio designed and implemented the platform used for over a hundred scholars and specialists in many fields, to cooperate in answering the complex adjacent spheres of humanity, its dynamics and beyond interact with the technosphere.

The project was designed along with Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science to create interactions that would fit this task. The first campus, in November 2014, demonstrated the importance and urgency of this interdisciplinary approach. It furthered the discussions and exercises around the concept of the technosphere as a key agent determine the dynamics of the Anthropocene.

Against this background the second edition of the Anthropocene Campus, in 2016, will shed light on the this man-made sphere, posing the challenge of describing, understanding, and more consciously shaping a twenty-first century wherein the forces of humanity, technology, culture, life, and industry act in accordance with the biophysical possibilities and limits of our planet.
