Om boka

Want to keep up with emerging design thinking and issues worldwide? Design Studio is a new thematic series that distils the most topical work and ideas from schools and practices globally.

Everything needs to change. Every minute we pollute the air and rivers using resources that we cannot replenish. Each newly erected building aggravates by consuming additional materials and energy.

Exploring architecture and the climate emergency, editors So fie Pelsmakers (sustainable architect, educator and author of The Environmental Design Pocketbook) and Nick Newman (climate activist and Director of award-winning practice Studio Bark) are channelling the message of Greta Thunberg to inspire, enthuse and inform the next generation of architects.

By including articles, building pro files and design projects from a range of leading voices, it explores solutions to climatic, environmental and social challenges. It urges readers to radically rethink what it means to be an architect in an era of climate crisis, and what the role of the architect is or can be.

Features: Goldsmith Street, Norwich; Kingsdale School, London; Upcycle Studios, Orestad; Olympic Pavilion, Tokyo; School of Dancing Arches, Bhadran; Burwood Brickworks, Melbourne; UN17 Village, Copenhagen, and more.

Discover how by using local materials and working with nature, radical design processes and transformative learning, infused with activism, hope can be found in the burning world.

The cover has been designed in four unique fluorescent colours - green, pink, red or yellow - and delivered at random.

Together, we can force change for a more sustainable and equitable tomorrow.
