10. AJ Climate Champions with Hattie Hartman.

Barnabas Calder charts the course of architectural history from hunter gatherers’ earliest mud and bone huts through coal-powered industrial Liverpool all the way to today’s search for regenerative design in Cork House (2019).

Calder explains how he got hooked on a climatic approach to architectural history and why he’s concluded that ‘small is good’, deciding to retrofit his current Liverpool terrace rather than upgrade to a larger home.
