This roundtable seminar discusses the meaning, impact, and applications of speculation in design. Speculation in finance is the action taken to minimise options of the opponent, where past information is used to project multiple futures for purposes of decision-making in maximising gain. Speculative design translates principles of time complexity into design, an interdisciplinary approach that takes into consideration feedback between all possible scenarios and parameters in identifying the optimal. How can this be translated into architecture and the built environment? The seminar invites Wonseok Chae (Wuppertal University), Victor Sardenberg (Leibniz Universit├Ąt Hannover) and Jonathan Sutanto (Staedelschule Architecture Class) to share their experiences and visions from the German academic scene - a country with a rich history in continental philosophy and internationalism design.
