'Re-scaling the Rural' - conference in Thy/Aarhus with Aarhus School of Architecture

Data centres, precision-farming, home offices and increasing connectivity: new forms of rurality are emerging physically and conceptually, and new dynamics are at play between ‘human’, ‘extra human’ and ‘non-human’ scales. What possibilities might there be within these new inter-scale relationships? What social and environmental gains and losses are at stake?

Reading The Rural Workshop

With this workshop we wish to convey techniques of approaching the rural through remote sensing, a method which allows for a complex understanding of the physical changes in the non-urban landscape.

This workshop aims at creating an understanding and an image of “The Rural” as multiple entities that will be constructed by overlaying ‘data’ produced by various institutions operating at different resolutions and from different parts of the planet.
