BIG: HOT TO COLD
Through the scorching heat of the Arabian Desert to the unforgiving chill of the Finnish tundra, BIG explores how design solutions are shaped by their cultural and climatic contexts to unlock the immense possibilities of adaptive architecture. The central challenge is to mitigate the climatic extremes for hospitable human life, while finding solutions that can be both economically and environmentally profitable. HOT TO COLD is a search for a pragmatic utopia, shaped as the kind of world we wish to inhabit.
