Climates: Architecture and the Planetary Imaginary brings together writings and work at the intersection of architecture and climate change. Neither a collective lament nor an inventory of architectural responses, the essays in this volume consider the cultural values ascribed to climate, and ask particularly how climate figures, historically and at present, in our conception of what architecture is and does. What are the material and conceptual infrastructures that render climate legible, knowable, and actionable, and what are their spatial implications? How do these interrelated questions offer new vantage points on the architectural ramifications of climate change, extending and amplifying our understanding of ideas like resiliency, sustainability, and ecotechnology? These essays and projects offer new ways of understanding climate in architecture, both revealing and reacting to the exigencies of environment through design.
