Lenora Ditzler


Lenora Ditzler is a key collaborator in "Countryside, The Future" on exhibit from February 20 through August 14, 2020 at Solomon R. Guggenheim Musuem in New York.

"Countryside, The Future is an exhibition addressing urgent environmental, political, and socioeconomic issues through the lens of architect and urbanist Rem Koolhaas and Samir Bantal, Director of AMO, the think tank of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). A unique exhibition for the Guggenheim Museum, Countryside, The Future will explore radical changes in the rural, remote, and wild territories collectively identified here as “countryside,” or the 98% of the Earth’s surface not occupied by cities, with a full rotunda installation premised on original research. The project presents investigations by AMO, Koolhaas, with students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design; the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing; Wageningen University, Netherlands; and the University of Nairobi. The exhibition will examine the modern conception of leisure, large-scale planning by political forces, climate change, migration, human and nonhuman ecosystems, market-driven preservation, artificial and organic coexistence, and other forms of radical experimentation that are altering landscapes across the world."

Lenora Ditzler is a PhD Candidate at Farming Systems Ecology, Wagneingen University in the Netherlands. She was Oxbow's Environmental Science instructor from OS23–OS30 and an Intern OS1–OS15.
