As part of the 2016 Venice Biennale for Architecture, Columbia GSAPP presents an installation of nearly 100 books in the James Stirling Book Pavilion, Giardini.
This selection serves as a collection of documents that asks us to consider how climate intersects with architectural ideas. Organized by Columbia GSAPP’s Publications team and The Avery Review, the entries are largely drawn from the recently published Climates: Architecture and the Planetary Imaginary, and are organized by themes that emerged in the process of editing the book: Earths, Political Ecologies, Corporealities, and Enclosures.
Gathered in the form of footnotes, the wide-ranging ideas and research on the histories, theories, and practices that confront the problem of climate are offered in anticipation of thoughts, conversations, and texts yet to come.
The accompanying brochure listing all titles can be read as a digital reader here. The installation is on view throughout the Biennale from May 28 until November 27, 2016.
