Tract 3

Climate + Advocacy

Between Natural + Built Environments

Design agendas and proposals often draw a boundary between the natural and built environment; but as architects, designers, builders-how do we construct space with nature and not as a means to draw a boundary against it? As architects, we often design buildings-but these decisions have implications at the city and territorial scale. Simultaneously, large scale territorial interventions influence the way we shape and experience space at the building scale. Presentations within this tract will focus on the dialogue between nature and constructed environment and the tran-scalar strategies explored within dynamic and evolving coastal contexts.
