The biannual summit convenes professors, practitioners, designers, curriculum developers, and studio coordinators from architecture schools in the United States. The purpose of the summit is to share ideas about the challenges of teaching architecture design in the face of the climate crisis, and methods for addressing issues like resource degradation, environmental racism, and circular economy practices in the studio setting.

This series was made possible through a generous gift from Emilio Ambasz. The Emilio Ambasz Institute for the Joint Study of the Built and the Natural Environment is a platform for fostering dialogue, promoting conversation, and facilitating research about the relationship between the built and natural environment, with the aim of making the interaction between architecture and ecology visible and accessible to the wider public while highlighting the urgent need for an ecological recalibration.
