A sense of accomplishment suffused the crowds gathered locally and the official statements broadcast globally &ndash; President Obama <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2015/12/12/paris-climate-accord-turning-point-world-obama-says/77218562/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">called the deal</a> &ldquo;a turning point for the world&rdquo; &ndash; but it followed some real moments of tension, as years worth of planning for the COP21 <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/dec/13/paris-climate-deal-cop-diplomacy-developing-united-nations" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">nearly came undone</a> in the face of disputed verbiage and policy.&nbsp;</p><p>Now, with the details announced, debate continues over the merits of the &ldquo;<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Agreement" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris Agreement</a>.&rdquo; But first it should be noted that it won&rsquo;t be official until at least 55 of the 195 pledge countries have ratified it, with the 55 ratifiers in turn accounting for at least 55% of global emissions. This pretty much necessitates ratification by the US government, whose Congress is currently run by the Republican party, a majority of whom <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/nov/23/climate-change-republican-party-trump-inhofe" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">refute</a> mainstream scientific consensus and deny the existence of anthropogenic climate chang...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/142995528/undisciplining-the-discipline-beatrice-galilee-sci-arc Undisciplining the discipline: Beatrice Galilee @ SCI-Arc Nicholas Korody 2015-12-09T19:49:00-05:00 >2015-12-16T00:00:14-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2o/2okwun108macnll7.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Exhibiting architecture is a notoriously difficult and contentious task. After all, how do you represent a spatial practice without neglecting the very qualities that made it worth representing in the first place? Nonetheless, it has a long history &ndash; extending at least as far back as the Enlightenment, according to the historian <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Exhibiting-Architecture-Eeva-Liisa-Pekonen/dp/1940291593" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Barry Bergdoll</a>.</p><p>Still, there&rsquo;s likely never been a period with more exhibits, biennials, triennials than the last few decades. Just about every major city in the world, from Venice to Chicago, Oslo to Jakarta, now hosts some big architecture event. Beatrice Galilee, a trained architect and the newly-appointed curator of architecture at the <a href="http://www.metmuseum.org/about-the-museum/press-room/news/2014/beatrice-galilee" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Metropolitan Museum of Art</a> in New York, has played a significant role in shaping and pushing the boundaries of this practice. In a talk delivered last night at <a href="http://www.sciarc.edu/lectures.php?id=2425" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">SCI-Arc</a>, she relayed some of the major &ndash; and often controversial &ndash; moves made over the course of her trajectory to becoming the first-ever architecture curator at th...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/142904746/thirst-quenching-as-los-angeles-heats-up-next-wave-ucla Thirst-quenching as Los Angeles heats up: Next Wave @ UCLA Nicholas Korody 2015-12-08T19:18:00-05:00 >2015-12-15T23:55:57-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/v6/v6m2ltvvspq7l9qj.jpg" width="514" height="282" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Last week, UCLA&rsquo;s Hammer Museum hosted the final iteration of its 2015 program "<a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/122213377/the-pragmatics-of-adaptating-to-sea-level-rise-the-next-wave-ucla" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Next Wave: Quality, Quantity, and Accessibility of Water in the 21st Century</a>," a robust discussion series that has gathered experts in various fields to explicate and consider the most pressing issues surrounding water in the 21st century.
