SINK OR SWIM: DESIGNING FOR A SEA CHANGE

Exhibitions, 01.12.2014

The winning Rebuild by Design concepts will be featured at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles upcoming exhibit Sink Or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change. The show will run from December 13 through until May 3 of next year. Location: 2000 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067.

The part of the show in which the designs will be featured deals specifically with architecture and infrastructure (built or conceptual) that addresses, in provocative and compelling ways, the threat of rising sea levels. The designs will be displayed on two large mounted monitors with captions describing each project and crediting each team. Sink Or Swim explores, through photography, the human story of resilience, from adaptation for survival to ambitious infrastructure planning, in some of the richest and poorest of the world’s coastal communities.
