Architecture for Unknown Worlds series, 2018

 

Investigations into the cause and effects of climate change influence this series of works titled Architecture for Unknown Worlds, 2018.  I engage the viewer to consider the human predicament as I invent themes of convoluted architectures, to inquire into an unknown future. I ask how can we provide adequate shelter in a consumer culture that is no longer sustainable? What kinds of changes will the human family make to accommodate ongoing migration and the energy crisis, and how important is the role of sustainable design?
