A sepia toned montage of tall buildings

The adoption of fossil fuels changed the spatial organization of human society, from the new building typologies invented to organize an emerging working class to the new urban archetypes that developed to meet the demands of circulation and consumption. These are the material building blocks of the fossil economy and the spatial roots of the climate crisis. This lecture will discuss the history of this phenomenon while theorizing, speculating, and imagining where an alternative may be found. Elisa Iturbe is Assistant Professor at The Cooper Union. Her research and writing focus on the relationship between energy, power, and form.
