Adaptive surface conditions that can mitigate extreme climatic scenarios


Nowhere in the current paradigm of “green” building is there a realistic discussion about what the climate and environment will look like in the coming decades, and distant future. The research centers on an architectural approach to future dystopian environments. Recent proposals that address the future of climate change do not deal with the practical climatic conditions that are likely to be present. The contemporary strategy of sustainable design assumes an optimistic outlook, with little regard to the immense economic, environmental, and political hurdles that must be breached in order to make this outlook a reality.
