R_E_D says: SOCIETY: an acknowledgement of climate change and a collective acceptance of new behaviours are the basis of urgently needed environmental change. CITY: there are more complex positions on the city available, sitting between engineering and urbanism, the top-down and the bottom-up, and there will be more to come, as environmental design ceases to be culturally illiterate, and urban design ceases to be environmentally illiterate. ARCHITECTURE: environmentally sustainable architecture will become the norm, and eventually taken as read within the term 'architecture'. DESIGN: a radically re-tuned built environment requires we think outside the box, and operate inside the box. PLANNING: meaningful democratisation of spatial planning and design is urgently required.
