We are born into architecture. It doesn’t matter if it is in a city hospital or a village or a camp, it was designed and laid out by someone. In this talk, Architect Michal Ziso explores the effects of the built environment on our behaviour and the way we think and feel. She raises the burning question – Why do we go through life never questioning if our built environment could be better suited for us and our personal needs? We accept our surroundings as a given even when it may have been created in times of a complete different social structure. An international architecture competition set to design a settlement on Mars, brought Architect Michal Ziso to the understanding that by stepping outside of our comfort zone, sometimes even reaching far foreign planets – like Mars, we could truly question cultural habits by experimenting freely, and promote change in an innovative way.
