Ornament and Climate

TEDx Berlin
Allison Dring
August, 2013


prosolve, along with another project: a consumer plastic synthesized from atmospheric CO2, represent a new materialization of climatic condition.

Opulence in architectural facades can signify or be tuned to work with specific conditions: air pollution, global warming, electro-magnetic currents, wind speed, etc.

When coupled with existing, inert surfaces, these new materials use the expanse of the architectural scale to improve performance, at the same time changing the language of the city from cultural vernacular to an architecture of climate. The materials have the ability to signify existing but often immaterial conditions that increasingly have impact on the way we live.
