Highlights from Climate and Architecture at Copenhagen
We all know architecture has the power to provoke conversation and challenge perceptions, and in this new age of sustainability, we must constantly ask what implications architecture has on our environment.
But what are the effects of the built environment in relation to the five senses? How does a building’s interior ‘climate’ relate to our own bodies?
That’s a question explored by Climate and Architecture, an exhibit at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture taking place this month in conjunction with the international climate summit COP15 in Copenhagen.
From speakers blaring techno music to lighting that promotes the release of melatonin and water coolers filled with mint or chilis, the interactive, multidimensional exhibit encourages visitors to connect the dots between their inner climates and external stimuli.
