The duration of fossil fuel dependency will be in large part determined by how rapidly and radically existing buildings can be decarbonized. Architects, engineers, historians, technologists, and others need to consider the shape, pace, and aspirations of the decarbonization process. We need to determine how best to design and create buildings appropriate to a new lifeworld: after carbon, after comfort.

Please join editors and contributors to After Comfort: A User’s Guide, e-flux Architecture’s editorial collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney, the Technical University of Munich, the University of Liverpool, and Transsolar, for a series of presentations and discussions on what tomorrow’s comfort might look like and how architecture’s value is evolving through its entanglement with the building industry, economic systems, and energy transitions.

The event is organized by Daniel A. Barber, co-editor of After Comfort: A User’s GuideNick Axel, deputy editor at e-flux Architecture, and Christina Moushoul, assistant editor at e-flux Architecture. It is moderated by Daniel A. Barber, and includes participants Florian Idenburg (SO-IL), Dorit Aviv (UPenn), and Bobby Johnston and Ruth Mandl (Co-Adaptive).

The event will take place in person at e-flux on Saturday, December 2 at 4pm.
