The Avery Review is a journal dedicated to thinking about books, buildings, and other architectural media. LAN has been invited to be one of the contributors of its next publication. Here is the introduction :
"Geography, climate, technique, and culture lie at the origins of typological and morphological evolutions in architecture and urban development. Igloos, compact Nordic buildings, or African wind towers are examples of responses to specific environmental conditions, of a “wise” architecture that contributes to an overall sense of ecological balance. Climate change requires us to be able to understand such examples in order to imagine others, to incorporate their know-how to invent a modern inter-seasonal architecture that contains multiple climate strategies."
The launch of the book is planned for May and will be presented at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
