Architects and designers around the world are working to create more sustainable ways of living, but global warming is catching up. In an effort to raise environmental consciousness, volunteers at 350.org will showcase aerial photographs of 12 different locations around the world that have been affected by climate change.
The organization is named after climate scientists' theory that carbon dioxide levels will outpace the human race once it hits 350 parts per million (PPM). Currently, the planet is at 390 PPM, according to Wired magazine. Members of 350.org will stream images of areas that have been devastated by climate change in the form droughts, floods and other natural disasters.
Musician Thom Yorke has joined the 350.org efforts as well. He plans to gather thousands of fans on the coastline of Brighton in the U.K. on November 27. Together, they will form the cover of his album, "The Eraser," which will be able to be seen from space. The image depicts King Canute, a former ruler who once attempted to control the ocean.
Architect jobs are projected to grow by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Future generations of architects will be presented with the task of creating more sustainable designs.
