In autumn 2022 Mathias teaches a design course at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture that deals with the human planetary claim as a series of spatial claims.
Turning our human impact of the Anthropocene into a positive force, students design a district that has its Earth Overshoot Day exactly then, when it should be: on December 31st. The design will combine the spatial claims for the entire district housing, work, production and recreation, but also for energy, food, carbon absorption and other spatial claims within the given area. It will be highly based upon local and decentralized principles.
