Climate change, particularly rising sea levels, is expected to have a substantial impact in Miami, Florida over the next 100 years. Miami 2100: Envisioning a Resilient Second Century, an exhibition at the Coral Gables Museum, addresses this pressing issue, examining effective design solutions through the lens of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning. The exhibition of graduate student work from Florida International University uses the city's existing infrastructure and architecture as the groundwork for future adaptation and development. A panel discussion highlighting the topic will take place on Thursday, February 12, with architects from BIG, OMA and West 8. Learn more, after the break.
Miami 2100, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Cejas Family Foundation, and the CINTAS Foundation, will be showcased in Gallery 109 and the Anthony R. Abraham Family Gallery of the Coral Gables Museum until March 1, 2015. The exhibit encompasses the unique challenges of generating stable designs for the city's evolving climatic conditions through comprehensive models, drawings, video interviews, and other mediums, including a large-scale interactive model of Miami's predicted sea level change over the next century. The project curators hope Miami 2100 will "offer unexpected but exciting opportunities to rethink and ultimately transform our urban areas so that they can remain vibrant, increasingly desirable places to live and work."
