We are on the verge of an intriguing moment wherein the cycles of economics and weather have collided to instigate a new green economy. This new deal builds upon the recent pop cultural aspects of climate change — enabling sustainable notions to permeate all facets of everyday life. Weather is a constant reminder that these forces are natural and exist in everyday life. The role of the building has always been to provide order and stability to the chaotic world, the architect drawing the lines that removed turbulence by organizing pluralistic and divergent forces into a unified form.
The reorganization of world economics, technology, social structures, communication, and politics calls for an architecture that is no longer resistant to this turbulence but emerges from instability itself. It is this type of architecture that is able to embrace the productive and atmospheric aspects of weather.
Predicting the duration of the green economy is as difficult as predicting the weather. Despite this, the static and consumptive nature of architecture has seemingly become a fact. By rooting architecture in instability, it causes architects to questions their fundamental tool — form.
If form could emerge from disorder instead of order and from turbulence rather than unity, architecture could initiate a dialogue with the ever-transforming weather. Arium questions and exploits the relationship of weather and architecture. Weather Permitting, architecture can now question its primary role and assess how to permit weather into its domain of order.
