As landscape representation, ICEBERGS invokes the surreal underwater-world of glacial ice fields. Such a world is both beautiful and ominous given our current epoch of climate change, ice-melt and rising seas – James Corner Field Operations.  

Go below the surface of ICEBERGS in this program that encourages dialogue with the designers, legal policy makers and science communicators about the impact of climate change on the designed and built places where we live, work, and play. Contribute your thoughts and ideas in a lively, moderated conversation as well as informally over light snacks and drinks while exploring the installation.

Speakers’ brief presentations provoke discussion on actions that can assist in adapting our communities in response to the impacts of climate change. Audience members and speakers are invited to discuss together possible solutions and strategies of mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency.
