How Sequestrating Architecture Can Save the World From Global Climate Change

Part 2 Project 2020

Is finding your house sinking into the ground the next big thing within sustainable architecture? Well, if you want to believe the architect of this project, it might just be a common sight in the near future, as the field of architecture responds to the IPCC’s call of action towards industries developing methods of C[O2] sequestration. ‘How sequestrating architecture can save the world from global climate change’ is a bold project that responded to that call, proposing an architecture that both sequestrates its’ embodied C[O2] mass and does so within a targeted time-frame of a generation, gifting society and its protagonists with a possibility of producing a truthfully net positive [read C[O2] reductive] footprint. It succeeds in doing so by drawing knowledge from a local history of sinking architecture.

The main ambition for this project is producing a proposal that challenges the field of architecture through the certification industry of Life Cycle Analysis [LCA]. By introducing a sequestrating, net positive architectural topography, the bar of contemporary sustainable architecture will be dramatically set higher, pushing the development and design of every architectural intervention to come. Performed as projected, this pioneering project might just be the world’s most sustainable architecture, ever designed.
