  • Disaster Preparedness in the Constructed Environment

     

    September 17, 2018 - October 03, 2018

    Opening reception + SCE Convocation + Disaster Preparedness 2.0, Sept 20, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

    Disaster Preparedness in the Constructed Environment features the products of a week-long disaster preparedness intensive at the Parsons School of Constructed Environments in Fall 2017. Students developed design responses to natural and human-made disasters across the disciplines of architecture, interior design, lighting design, and product design. Generated from design briefs on New York-related disaster scenarios of the 1977 and 2003 blackouts, 9/11, and Hurricane Sandy, and fortified with resources and data gathered by The Japan Foundation Asia Center and student researchers from The New School’s Zolberg Center on Migration and Mobility, this exhibition provides fuel for SCE's Disaster Preparedness Intensive 2.0, from September 24-28, 2018. This school-wide intensive is the final stepping-stone across the past three years to the first North American exhibit of Hirokazu Nagata’s Earth Manual Project, opening September 27 in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery.
