The book 'Climates: Architecture and the Planetary Imaginary' is a collection of essays at the intersection of architecture and climate change.

Neither a collective lament nor an inventory of architectural responses, the essays consider cultural values ascribed to climate and ask how climate refl ects our conception of what architecture is and does. Which materials and conceptual infrastructures render climate legible, knowable, and actionable, and what are their spatial implications? How do these interrelated questions offer new vantage points on the architectural ramifi cations of climate change at the interface of resiliency, sustain-ability, and ecotechnology?

Climates: Architecture and the Planetary Imaginary also contains a dossier of precedents for thinking about architecture and climate change drawn from a number of leading practitioners. New approaches to understanding climate in architecture make this book invaluable.
