At the time of the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009 we were thinking about ways to illustrate the complexity of climate change. We tried to include the negotiation context, but also pay tribute to the social, economic, scientific, biological and human dimension of it. All together we thought of the climate architecture as a building under construction. Each of the factors that have to be taken into account when wanting to understand climate change being one of the floors of the building and the negotiations providing the construction elements and the skeleton of the building that comes into existence.

This is the newest version of our climate building illustration. Let us know what you think!
