Salty Urbanism: Brooks and Scarpa
April 10, 2019 • 6:00 pm PDT
A recent study by the California Coastal Commission projects that in 25 to 50 years, as the earth gets warmer and sea-levels rise, Venice Canals will experience frequent flooding from winter storms, making it one of the first neighborhoods in Los Angeles to experience the impacts of climate change. Salty Urbanism: Brooks + Scarpa examines the impact of sea level rise and flooding in coastal cities, using North Beach Village in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Venice Beach, California as case studies. The exhibition offers alternative ways forward for these neighborhoods in response to climate instability and saturated landscapes, including best management practices, low impact development and green infrastructure.
Opens April 1; Exhibition runs through April 19. Lecture and Reception April 10, 6 pm
