The Architecture That Comes Next

In Eaarth, Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, author Bill McKibben analyzes the damage we've done to our terrestrial and marine environment, outlining and advocating ways in which we can live on the land. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will expand upon McKibben's evaluation by outlining various initiatives around the globe that represent multidisciplinary ocean-based architectural solutions for when and if we exhaust resources on land and must turn to the ocean for our food, energy and fresh water.

Peter Neill, Director of the W2O and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
