In this lecture, Dr. Kohler briefly discusses different philosophical concepts of time, with a particular emphasis on theories of time as a social framework. He then applies these considerations of time as an abstract concept and as a phenomenon integral to human existence to issues of sustainable architecture, and specifically to problems surrounding the design of a high-speed railway hub.
The third in a series of five lectures presented by Niklaus Kohler to the students in the UT School of Architecture Foundations of Sustainable Architecture class (ARC350R, Fall 2009). Video and accompanying slides.
