Becca Voelcker: Architecture is Climate
What happens to architecture after the climate emergency undoes its foundational assumptions of growth, extraction, and progress? Climate breakdown demands systemic change across economic, behavioural, and social structures, with profound implications for approaches to the built environment and spatial production. This research examines how spatial practices might respond to such challenges, going beyond technical fixes, by addressing the cultural and socioeconomic factors that influence how we make, occupy, and share space.
