Publisher:Arquitectura Viva

  • Paperback

The changes caused by humans on the Earth’s crust are of such magnitude as to have begun a new geological age, the so-called Anthropocene, the latest phase of the Quaternary, and this historical mutation is reflected as much in architecture as in the cities and landscapes of our time.

With this issue Arquitectura Viva joins the discussion on this period of transformation, marked by the sustainability agenda, in its two latest issues, which come as siblings under the titles ‘Change of Climate’ and ‘Anthropocene,’ in that order. ‘Anthropocene’ explores the paradoxes and potentials of an epoch marked by human civiization through a long essay by Luis Fernández-Galiano, titled ‘Architecture and Life’.
