Habitat Building History


Initiated in 2020, Habitat Building History is a research collective dedicated to connecting architecture historians, architects, artists, and earth scientists interested in understanding the complex relationship between architecture and the planet. The group calls these spaces of human and planetary negotiation “habitats.” Galvanized by the looming threat of climate change, the group collects lost or forgotten methods of habitat building from around the world and throughout time that can help us re-orient contemporary building culture to not exceed our planetary boundaries. The HBH group is an expansively collaborative one and publishes its work through biannual thematic issues that include interviews, essays, artworks, and field reports. Website: https://hbh.center/
