Ann-Sofi Rönnskog (Finnish, b.1976) and John Palmesino (Italian, b.1970) of Territorial Agency (UK, est.2007)


Sensible Zone is a proposition to engage the most important project for the future of human cohabitation: sea level rise. We might have just enough time to keep oil in the ground and reduce its dangers of global warming and climate chaos. Thirty years to change what we have destroyed in the last thirty years of rapid urbanization. Thirty years to become sensible to the multiple transformation processes of the Earth, and prepare for a new architecture.
