The report, released on October 11, is alarming. As <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/global-warming-must-not-exceed-15c-warns-landmark-un-report" target="_blank">the Guardian</a><em></em> puts it &ldquo;we have 12 years to limit climate catastrophe, warns U.N.&rdquo; Based on discussions from the IPCC meeting in Paris in 2016, a group of scientists reviewed and summarized thousands of relevant articles to assess the relative goals of 1.5 and 2&ordm;C increase in global average temperature, from an 1850 baseline. It suggests that immediate action is needed&mdash;on reducing carbon emissions, on removing carbon from the atmosphere&mdash;to keep warming to 1.5&ordm;C, and also warns that governments must begin preparing for social disruption from climate instability.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150091189/archinectmeets-shitgardens #ArchinectMeets @shitgardens Shane Reiner-Roth 2018-10-23T11:23:00-04:00 >2018-10-23T11:23:15-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/c1/c1c4b9b047870a6dd8fd2ce25fe74831.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/1198457/archinectmeets" target="_blank">#ArchinectMeets</a>&nbsp;is a series of interviews with members of the architecture community that use Instagram as a creative medium.

Each successful in their own right, they decided they wanted to work together combining their expertise in architecture, design, engineering and town planning - a place-making competition developing the corridor that spans Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford, seemed the perfect opportunity.&nbsp;</p> <p>I recently met with the team to find out more about how they work together collaboratively and what made their entry stand out.

While media attention is absorbed by the city, many rural regions are experiencing accelerating change due to increased automation, the emergence of <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/105801/megastructure" target="_blank">megastructures</a> and new self-learning systems, all of which are reshaping the terrain. The divisive political events of 2017 exhibited just how much today&rsquo;s countryside has grown apart from the city both ideologically and spatially. To kick off 2018, in New Ground I, the first of a two-part feature series co-authored with <a href="https://archinect.com/features/article/149999813/between-the-home-and-the-market-an-interview-with-christine-bjerke-from-next-up-floating-worlds" target="_blank">Christine Bjerke</a> from <a href="http://www.inbetweeneconomies.net/" target="_blank">In-Between Economies</a>, we will briefly explore a selection of major shifts that have influenced how the countryside operates today.
