Process – Architect Forum
Wed 6 July 6:00 pm
Humans aren’t the only bodies who need a safe place to call home and a sustainable future; every species and every landscape has a right to dwell, unfurl and occupy.
All around us, we share our homes with non-human guests – invited and otherwise. As climate change and population growth limit ranges and territories of endemic species, we come into closer proximity with some animals, fungi and plants and lose contact with others altogether. Landscapes around us recoil while others draw nearer. Deserts, the waves and the forests are moving from their home ranges.
What happens when we consider the creatures and landscapes around us as important in our architecture? What gifts do we ourselves receive when we begin to think of our cities and our suburbs as ecosystems? Can we rethink the balance?
