Curator Walk Through: Survival Architecture and the Art of Resilience

February 27, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Science, technology, architecture and art converge to question the nature and purpose of survival within the context of climate change and natural disaster: How do we design and retrofit our built world to adapt to increased uncertainty and do it affordably? How do we produce dwellings that have a full life-cycle of durability pre, during and post-disaster?

In Survival Architecture and the Art of Resilience, Art Works for Change invited visionary architects and artists to consider artistically interpretive solutions and prototypes for emergency shelter in a climate-constrained world. Large-scale and portable interactive architectural installations, models, photography and drawings impress the importance and sociocultural relevance of emergency and survival housing in the age of climate change. Through invention, artistic playfulness, and innovation, artists will explore materials, technology, culture and social activism to create a pioneering exhibition.

Join guest curator Randy Jayne Rosenberg for an exhibition walk-through and conversation exploring adaptable and sustainable housing in the age of climate change.
