Less Talk More Action: Conscious Shifts in Architectural Education

Culture Jamming & Climate Change

Fall Conference Proceedings

Author(s): Brent Sturlaugson

While much of the fi eld of architecture claims to be concerned with the mounting effects of climate change, its tools for combating it are limited. Important gains have been made in raising minimum performance standards, developing alternative materials, and voicing support of progressive policies, but these gains are insufficient. In the face of unprecedented warming and its demonstrated spillover effects, architecture must leverage every possible angle in pursuit of a viable future, including those that capture the imagination. This project seeks to forge new relationships between architecture and climate change by using activist techniques collected under the umbrella of culture jamming.
