Time Space Existence: Exploring and answering the call to reflect on the current environmental and social infrastructure issues that impact places like Miami and other communities around the world. While rising sea levels are a problem that communities in coastal areas deal with daily, affordable housing, and the state of our environment are fundamental issues that affect communities across the globe.
In this exhibition, we will shed light on these issues. Creating and facilitating a global dialogue that asks us to reflect and respond to these challenges. Participating architects and designers will present their ideas and achievements through a variety of projects that include: conceptual works, models, photographs, videos, sculptures, and site-specific installations.
Though we are faced with ongoing challenges, our hope is to provide a platform for thought, dialogue, and exploration. To provide context on how these issues impact cities like Miami, but also how they translate globally, so that we may share in new perspectives to simulate our growth and continue shaping our future together.
