Daniel Barber in Harvard Design Magazine
Associate Professor Daniel Barber and PhD Fellow Erin Putalik have a new essay in Harvard Design Magazine. "Forest, Tower, City: Rethinking the Green Machine Aesthetic" examines the interplay of forests and urban architecture. They write, "Maybe we can aspire instead to produce architectural visions that help us imagine forests and trees as a 'community to which we belong' rather than systems to be exploited."
Daniel Barber is an architectural historian researching the relationship between the design fields and the emergence of global environmental culture across the 20th century.
Erin Putalik studies the history of building materials and technology, technological dimensions of global modernisms, and instances of technological exchange in the post-war decades.
