Design for Climate Action

Architecture and Analogous Habitats

Intersections Proceedings

Author(s): Ariane Lourie Harrison

Harrison Atelier proposes architecture for multiple species in projects that range from pavilion-scale agricultural infrastructure to speculations for new urban ecologies. Such built work represents the application of principles from architectural theories of the posthuman, namely a focus that seeks to integrate habitats for non-humans into architectural design concerns. The Pollinators Pavilion by architect Ariane Harrison, seeks a larger role for architecture in environmental activism and focuses on biodiversity conservation and materials exploration. Harrison Atelier uses artificial intelligence and automated scientific monitoring strategies to create and analyze habitat systems and increase building awareness.
