This thesis contends that the narrative nature of architecture gives it the potential to act as a jeremiad, taking the present day failings of society in the face of climate change and extrapolating out a potential future dystopia to instigate a critical dialogue and challenge the status quo. Here, architecture will act as a medium, as opposed to more typical literary works or photojournalism techniques which are usually associated with communicating social critique.
