In light of the current climate crisis, what can architecture contribute towards a new planetary imagination of our contemporary environment beyond environmentalism and technological determinism? Architecture as Measure positions climate change as a cultural and political idea that requires a renewed architectural environmental imagination.
The Architecture as Measure project defines the planetary as the vast geo-temporal scales through which climate emergency accelerates. Presented through an installation, a website publication, and storytelling, the Architecture as Measure project for the Pavilion of Turkey at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia titled How Will We Live Together? focuses on the politics and nuances of the seemingly mundane aspects and sites of architectural construction, juxtaposing them with their respective planetary counterparts through geographies of material extraction, supply chains, maintenance and care in Turkey and beyond.
