On the launch of his new book The Casket of Time, Andri Snær Magnason, award-winning author of the book Dreamland: A Self Help Manual for a Frightened Nation, joins us with leading architect and futurist Bjarke Ingels for a discussion on time and how to give shape to the future. We are living in a time when the major forces acting on the surface of the planet are driven by humans. During the lifetime of our children, major glaciers will disappear, sea levels will rise more rapidly than ever before, and atmospheric CO2 will reach levels not seen for hundreds of thousands of years. Changes are happening on a scale difficult for humans to understand.
What comes to mind when we talk about the future and when a scientist talks about the year 2100? How do we relate to that future on a personal level, and how does that resonate in architecture or writing?
Copies of A Casket of Time, a fantastical tale of time travel and environmental calamity for readers ages 10 and up, will also be available for purchase and signing.Buy tickets/get more info now
