Samburu Stories: Exhibiting Architecture in the Climate Emergency is curated by students from University College Dublin. It recounts the story of the collaborative experience of building the n’kaji, the vernacular house of the Samburu lowlands of Kenya. This form of architecture is an excellent conduit for understanding facets of the climate emergency that are often deemed theoretical. Through studying the house from a holistic, transdisciplinary perspective, we can better understand the complexities of global warming and consider how climate change will impact the ways we build and live over the coming decades.
The Irish Architectural Archive was established in 1976 to collect and preserve material of every kind relating to the architecture of the entire island of Ireland, and make it available to the public.
