More than Nature

The fact that, so far, no effective response to climate change has been found is partly because we understand “nature” as something that differs from what “culture” means to humans. This distinction hinders a real understanding of environmental dependencies. If we really wanted to think of architecture in a radically ecological way, we would have to include not only the urban context in the design but also the material and all creatures intended to live in it. In our next issue, as a kind of experiment, we present built and aesthetic responses as a topic for discussion.
