Cultures of temperate world regions carry out their lives in the artificial interiors of HVAC systems. We are able to ignore the exterior. CONSTRUCTED CLIMATES explores the inversion: combined relationships in aperture, orientation, and porosity generate geometries that graduate the intensity with which we experience the exterior in an interior environment. A series of studies explore the amplification of wind forces, humidity, and temperatures. The subject progresses from one extreme of discomfort to another within the same enclosed environment.
