How do architects and urbanists develop projects in a time where the future seems even more unpredictable than ever before? In this session we will explore approaches and methodologies applied in research and practices that address planetary life conditions not yet manifested but to be expected such as sea level rises, weather changes etc.
Architects Jorge Lobos and Nina Louise Jensen from Architecture & Human Rights will present their concept ‘Global Bridges’ which joins green innovation engineering and local communities that live in extreme environments. They use architecture, art, and social science as a bridge to transfer sustainable technology towards communities around the world and vice versa. The second part of the session will be a conversation between moderator Kristoffer Weiss and architect and associate professor David Garcia about his work with Extreme Environments, which has attracted international attention for his consistent study of the impact of climate change on our everyday lives, and his activistic working methods onsite.
