Support for the exhibition is provided by Simpson Strong-Tie, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
An exhibition exploring adaptable and sustainable housing in the age of climate change.
Within the exhibition, 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.
