Arium: Weather + Architecture

A handbook on weather and architecture

Is Weather the last vestige of nature in the city?
Do the forces in Weather systems hold the key to the energy crisis?
Is instability and disorder something that can be designed?

Is Weather the nemesis of Architecture or its best friend?
Is Weather becoming the last form of cultural specificity?
Does it all come down to the "green"?

Arium is a guidebook to Weather and Architecture. Examining the relationship between the atmosphere, built environment, culture, and politics, this comprehensive research project--under the direction of the architect Jürgen Mayer H. from Berlin and urban designer Neeraj Bhatia from Toronto--offers an in-depth look at our contemporary understanding of weather through critical examinations of design and architecture.

Editors: Jürgen Mayer H. & Neeraj Bhatia
Graphic Design: Eric Bury, Visuals Etcetera.
