Book ID: 101326

The changes caused by humans on the Earths crust are of such magnitude as to have begun a new geological age, the so-called Anthropocene, the latest phase of the Quaternary, and this historical mutation is reflected as much in architecture as in the cities and landscapes of our time. Arquitectura Viva joins the discussion on this period of transformation, marked by the sustainability agenda, in its two latest issues, which come as siblings under the titles ÔChange of Climate and Anthropocene, in that order. Anthropocene explores the paradoxes and potentials of an epoch marked by human civiization through a long essay by Luis Fern‡ndez-Galiano, titled Architecture and Life.
