Global Climate Crisis and the Measures Taken Against the Accelerating Deterioration of the Earth - Sustainable Measures in Architectures Future

The global climate crisis is a real threat to future generations on Earth. The effects of climate change first started showing up during the industrial revolution. Especially in London where water from the River Thames became non-drinkable and the air became impossible to breathe in. This research specifically focuses on the global climate crisis and the measures taken against the accelerating deterioration of the earth. We also look into which factors play a major role in accelerating the process. We researched the current deteriorating climatic conditions that started first from the industrial revolution and the discovery of plastic has only accelerated its effects. The main focus is on how the architecture and building construction industry has been a part of worsening the situation on our planet and in which direction of decelerating the process are we going. It also includes sustainable methods to mitigate the detrimental impacts that it has caused throughout the years since the modern architectural revolution. These measures are discussed in detail for the future of architecture, in particular materials and urban life. Moreover, we can say that passive technology is as important as AI. Research for new, durable materials must continue so that they can be mass-produced without causing serious damage to our environment.
