Scholar lecture: THE (TRANS)FORMATION OF AIR-CONDITIONING COMPLEXES

Manton Fellow Jiat-Hwee Chang presents “The (Trans)formation of Air-conditioning Complexes: Architectural Histories and Futures from Asia.”

How did cities and urban populations around the world become dependent on air-conditioning? How did air-conditioning dependency transform built environment, material culture, and social practices? This lecture seeks to explore these questions by drawing from the architectural and sociotechnical histories of air-conditioning in Singapore and Doha.
