Journeys: How travelling fruit, ideas and buildings rearrange our environment

The Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal presents the exhibition ‘Journeys: How Travelling Fruit, Ideas and Buildings Rearrange Our Environment’, from October 19 to March 13, 2011.

Although immigration is a dominant topic in contemporary culture, its discussion is often limited to the human experience, such as the crossing of borders and issues about national identity.

The upcoming exhibition at the CCA takes a different perspective: how movements impact on the environment. Examples range from the coconut that can drift freely on the ocean current and re-seed wherever it finds land, to government-enforced relocation, the uprooting and rearranging of communities in a way that changes landscape and society forever.
