Footnotes on Climate

An installation of nearly 100 books in the James Stirling-designed Book Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 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.

"Footnotes on Climate" is accompanied by a free reference brochure that will also be hosted on Columbia GSAPP's new digital Reader, accessible from the school's website.
