Drawing on my recently-published book Animal Architecture: Beasts, Buildings and Us (Reaktion, 2023), this talk considers how and why architects should be more open to more-than-human life in both conceiving and constructing the built environment. Weaving a narrative that draws together theory and practice, I argue that animals have their own distinctive kind of agency in the world, whether as beings that build for themselves, ones that choose to inhabit our buildings, or others that affect our imaginations and fictions.
