On Thursday, Nov. 3, the book launch URBAN ANDES Design-led explorations to tackle climate change will take place at the IABR.
Using design explorations as a tool for collaboration and knowledge production, this book offers insights in the way one balances landscape logics and human occupation within the context of climate change, water scarcity and rapid urban growth. Climate change and the effects of disappearing glaciers and changing water supplies is strongly felt by those living in the high Andean landscape. In collaboration with local stakeholders, ngo’s, community organizations and young design professionals, this design research project explores how we can respond to these pressing issues in the context of the Ayacucho region.
This book launch takes place in the IABR exhibition Future Generation, which features work by authors of the book Willem Hubrechts and Louise Blancquaert, among others. We will talk with Ward Verbakel (architect, editor Urban Andes), Margarita Macera Carnero (author Urban Andes), Eva Pfannes (architect OOZE), Willem Hubrechts (architect and author Urban Andes) and Louise Blancquaert (architect engineer and author Urban Andes).
URBAN ANDES Design-led explorations to tackle climate change is the first publication in a new book series ‘Landscape and Architecture Projections’ by Leuven University Press.
