In recognition of the dire threats of climate collapse and mass extinction, the global initiative Bauhaus Earth convened a team of scientists, architects, spatial planners, and policy makers from around the world to author a manifesto.Toward Re-Entanglement is a call for radical action. It challenges all those with a role in the conception, production, operation, and governance of the building sector, to address the systemic ecological, climatic, and social impacts incurred by its activities.
Twelve principles of re-entanglement guide the re-design of the entire life cycle of the urban realm: the re-formation and re-materialization of the physical artifacts that comprise it, the reconfiguration of the socioeconomic structures that underpin it, and the re-engagement of the bioregions that might sustainably supply it. In this way, our unprecedented convergence of environmental and social crises offers us powerful opportunities for systemic change.
