Without environmental justice, there can be no social justice. This volume sets the table for inclusive architectural engagement during a time circumscribed by pandemic, climate change and inequality. An esteemed group of international voices amplify interactions involving sexism, racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia and environmental catastrophe, exploring how they inextricably linked. Without acknowledging the interconnectedness of these injustices, we will not find effective ways to halt the deepening crisis. Features: Marcos Cruz, Casper Laing Ebbensgaard, Antón García-Abril, Alexandra Daisy Ginsburg, Ariane Lourie Harrison, Kerry Holden, Walter Hood, Joyce Hwang, Kabage Karanja, V. Mitch McEwen, Débora Mesa, Timothy Morton, Stella Mutegi, Brenda Parker, Carolyn Steel, McKenzie Wark, Kathryn Yusoff and Joanna Zylinska.
