Abstract
Architecture is in need of a global theory, a theory capable to explain architecture in the context of the whole earth. Against the backdrop of a looming ecological crisis that forces architects to reconsider once again the relationship between nature and culture, Scalbert explores a sweeping set of references ranging from architectural history, literature, science, geography or vernacular studies, all in an effort to set the parameters for a contemporary conversation that may reinvigorate once again the way in which architects take on nature as an intrinsic and necessary part of their work.
