Is finding your house sinking into the ground the next big thing within sustainable architecture? Well, if you find the arguments of this project strong enough, it might actually be a common sight in the near future. The field of architecture needs to respond to the IPCC's call for action for methods of C[O2] sequestration to help antagonize the developing global climate change. How architecture can save the world from global climate change is a bold project that responds to that call, proposing an architecture that both sequesters its embodied C[O2] mass and does so within a targeted time frame of a generation. Ultimately, gifting society and its protagonists with a possibility of producing a truthfully net positive [read C[O2] reductive] footprint. It succeeds in doing so by drawing knowledge from a local history of sinking Nordic timber log architecture and combining it with the theory of sequestration. Performed as projected, this pioneering project might just be the world's most sustainable architecture, ever designed.

How architecture can save the world from global climate change is for anyone with an architectural fascination longing for a deeply illustrated and detailed read of sustainable architecture and Nordic timber log design. In a comprehensive way, it weaves architectural poetry together with hard data, science, construction details and ideological ambitions in a convincing argument for the benefit of society's bettered relationship to climate. In conclusion this book is more than just a coffe book blend of a scientific report, it is a piece of art, challenging the basic perception of what an architectural book can be.

"An intensely original and highly provocative MA Thesis, executed with care; supported by an amazing body of research with attention to detail and scientific accuracy. A mythic construction, full of poetic notions that allows others to rethink change."
