Climates of Publicness

Ed will deliver a keynote lecture at the Architectural Association on Tuesday 11 January, 2022, as part of their public programme.

You can join in person or online.

The lecture explores relations between landscapes of climate change and public sites where the futures of planetary global warming are confronted. It claims the interconnected landscapes of the climate crisis as new sites of publicness; from spaces of political debate and dissent to landscapes of extraction and consumption, and from flooding coastlines of island nations to headquarters of corporate industries and banks profiting from environmental destruction. The lecture brings together grounded research with urban theory and design speculation to map out the unequal and public nature of landscapes of the climate crisis.
