Department of Architecture-Winter Lecture Series: Mick Pearce

Mick Pearce
Architect from Harare, Zimbabwe
By Re-Visioning what we call climate change as a metamorphosis of the world Beck releases us from this blindness. I will show, with images of buildings which I have built in Africa, Australia and China how as architects we can aim to design adaptable structures which are ecologically resilient to natural, social and economic changes for a new and growing cosmopolitan society where green urbanism and sustainability has become normalized. I will conclude by showing where massive urbanization with movement of people from the rural areas and across national boundaries in Zimbabwe increases the power of cities over national governments and could lead to the transfiguration of buildings in the city.
