Columbia GSAPP books, through The Avery Review, has published Climates: Architecture and the Planetary Imaginary with Lars Mueller Publishers, and it was recently launched at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, along with an installation of books that reflect the intersection of climate with architectural ideas. I am proud to be a contributor to this massive and beautiful volume, with my essay “The Crystal: Architecture Calibrating Climate Change for the Urban Future.”
I am grateful for the Design History Society Student Conference Bursary Award which gave me the opportunity to attend the Design History Society Conference held this year in San Francisco. My report on my presentation at the conference is on the Design History Society blog here.
