Global Architecture Exchanges (GAE) @ UIA2023

This in-person session will explore the topic of Carbon and Beyond: How do we address embodied and operational carbon in our attitude designs for the built environment, what else needs to be considered, e.g. community and an unknown and uncertain future.
