In 2020 and 2021 IABR–DOWN TO EARTH asks: Where can we land? Can we re-settle on planet Earth, as it were, in a sustainable balance with other lifeforms and one with nature? Can we, as philosopher Bruno Latour puts it, redesign our living environments ‘as that on which a terrestrial depends’ and always ask ourselves ‘what other terrestrials also depend on it?’. The campaign and identity is based on the endless possibilities of a 5x5 grid. The use of colours refer to the two crucial topics of the biennale: energy (red) and water (blue).
