Global warming is changing more than just the weather – architecture is also affected.
Susannah Hagan, Professor of Urban Studies at the University of Brighton, is giving a lecture “True Love? Architecture and Nature”, examining the way in which design has been falling in and out of love with nature for centuries: “The relationship is a given, but sometimes it has been flaunted and sometimes vehemently denied.
“The line between climate change and a technology-driven eco architecture is therefore just one expression of the current reassessment of architecture’s relationship to nature.”
Her lecture, free to the public, will be given during a Royal Institute of British Architects’ afternoon of debates on climate change at the university’s Watts building in Lewes Road, Brighton, starting at 2pm on 21 April.
