Before the summer heat really settles in St Pete, join the MFA and scholar Dr. Daniel A. Barber for a look at how architecture changed with the advent of air conditioning and how it must now change again as we reconsider what sustainable living looks like on our planet. Exploring historical and contemporary architectural examples, Dr. Barber will discuss how artists, architects, and other creative professionals can support the work of scientists and sociologists as we reimagine functional design and learn to become comfortable with discomfort.

Daniel A. Barber is a professor of architecture at the University of Technology Sydney and a research affiliate at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. His research and teaching focus on how the practice and pedagogy of architecture are changing to address the climate emergency. Daniel has held academic positions and fellowships at Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale.
