Large Scale Approach

Reinier de Graaf speaks to urbanNext in the context of the Obel Award and UIA 2023. This engaging conversation delves into the concept of ‘mending’ as both a proactive approach and a philosophical grounding for addressing climate change. Highlighting the necessity for innovative and culturally sensitive solutions, the discussion emphasizes the importance of local adaptation in architectural practices. Architects are challenged to rethink their role beyond traditional construction, considering how their work can actively contribute to repairing the planet. With a focus on the intersection of global trends such as urbanization and climate change, the dialogue questions the scale of architectural projects and their potential impacts. The conversation also reflects on the future of architecture as a discipline capable of influencing positive environmental and societal change. This thought-provoking interview invites viewers to reconsider the power of architecture in the global effort to mend our climate.”
