About Anthropocenitecture

How do we design in the age of the Anthropocene? How can we address issues and problems that seem so much bigger than architecture…despite architecture’s proven contributions to global warming? WORKac knows as little as the next architect; but we are committed to engaging the issues of our time head-on. Utilizing research, design, wit and optimism, we are actively engaged in reinventing the role that we as architects can play in shaping the future.
