New Speculative Drawing Exhibition Reconsiders Climate Change through a Manifesto on the Environmental Imagination
Geostories: Another Architecture for the Environment, an exhibition presented by The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art from October 17 through December 2, 2017, brings together four speculative research projects by Design Earth, that visualize climate change on a planetary scale.
Design Earth is a collaborative design-research practice led by architects Rania Ghosn and El Hadi Jazairy. Through their research, the pair questions how the environment is changing due to human interference and the built world. Each of the four site and subject-specific projects, gathered together for the first time after being on view at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Oslo Architecture Triennale, Sharjah Biennial, and Seoul Biennale, features 33 large-scale drawings printed on canvas and mounted on wood. The work invites the public to engage with the Earth and humanity’s relation to it.
This exhibition is presented in association with Archtober, Architecture and Design Month New York City, October 2017.
