Cities that think like planets and architecture as the design of microclimates.
Novel synergies will put forward a new settlement paradigm, based on the co-evolution and negotiation between the needs of humans and the nonhuman world. Can design and planning bring to light the links between urban development, ecosystem function, and individual action and choice based on new cultural values? Can ‘Architecture follow climate’ instead of form as a primary driver?
