As architecture comes to grips with its role in climate change – or at least the role of its primary product, buildings – trees have appeared as a kind of new mediator: either “greening” new developments or as engineered material in new “responsible” or “carbon sink” construction.

Guest edited by Elisa Iturbe, critic at the Yale School of Architecture, this special issue addresses climate change and the critical importance of architecture’s role in overcoming obstacles to rethinking and re-forming our world. The message is that trees may be a short-term solution, but they are not an architectural solution. With contributions from Rania Ghosn, Daniel A. Barber, Ingrid Halland, and more.
