The Fundamentals lecture series is back, and this year the focus is on climate. Is architecture as we know it incompatible with our future?
Fundamentals: Climate is a series of lectures addressing three topics; Building, City and Practice. The final debate in the series, Fundamentals: Practice, asks can we save architectural practice from obsolescence?

Underpinned as it is by the principles of growth and progress, architecture risks becoming ever more obsolete. The built environment is a significant cause of the climate and ecological crises, implicated in the economic systems that produced them. But could it be the solution? From the promises of technofixes to that debatable word ‘sustainability’ the next series of Fundamentals, hosted by writer and broadcaster Tom Dyckhoff, discusses the most urgent issue facing the planet today.
