Given the fast pace of climate change, the degradation of the ecosystem, and the impacts on human health, planners and architects are in charge of developing regenerative cities and buildings that will reverse such processes. This lecture focuses on hyperspecific climate changes and proposes a 10 scale approach from the urban scale to personal architectural devices. Future changes in temperatures are studied as a resource to create opportunities for biodiversity, decarbonization and health catalyzed by architectural creation.
