Through the scorching heat of the Arabian Desert to the unforgiving chill of the Finnish tundra, HOT TO COLD takes visitors on a journey across the globe to explore the forces that shape our cities and buildings. BIG explores how design solutions are shaped by their cultural and climatic contexts to unlock the immense possibilities of adaptive architecture.
