On dis­play now — Cli­mate Provo­ca­tions: RE:CORING / RE:SHORING

Pratt School of Architecture’s Cli­mate Provo­ca­tions for Gov­er­nors Island (202122) offers an acces­si­ble and inter­ac­tive design expe­ri­ence for address­ing cli­mate lit­er­a­cy with instal­la­tions, pavil­ions and exhi­bi­tions cen­tered on two themes: design­ing ecosys­tem restora­tion and com­mu­ni­cat­ing ecosys­tem loss. The Pratt Grad­u­ate Archi­tec­ture and Urban Design (GAUD) pro­gram’s Re: Hous­ing Green Core pavil­ion pro­pos­es a series of eco­log­i­cal cores that pro­vide new mod­els of water, clima­ti­za­tion, pow­er ser­vices and acces­si­bil­i­ty for these his­toric homes. Pratt’s team of over 40 diverse and lead­ing cli­mate artists, archi­tects, cura­tors, design­ers, edu­ca­tors, and fab­ri­ca­tors are work­ing togeth­er to build these new spaces of under­stand­ing, work­ing with Pratt research cen­ters includ­ing the Con­sor­tium for Research & Robot­ics (CRR), Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Tech­nol­o­gy Lab (ITL), the Inclu­sive Ecolo­gies Research Incu­ba­tor (IE) and exter­nal part­ners from UCL, and Dis­tin­guished Cli­mate Fel­lows. Ari­ane Har­ri­son, PhD, AIA has coor­di­nat­ed this project as a Dean’s Office ini­tia­tive of the Pratt School of Architecture. 

The Cli­mate Provo­ca­tions exhi­bi­tion will fea­ture pro­to­types, movies and works in progress for the 14 instal­la­tions planned for Sum­mer 2022. The instal­la­tions at Build­ing 14 (the Pratt House”) and across Gov­er­nors Island seek to cre­ate an open-air class­room that will bring cli­mate change dia­logue and edu­ca­tion to the island’s annu­al 1M+ vis­i­tors. With sup­port from Gensler, the Dean’s Office, and Pratt’s Office of Infor­ma­tion Technology. 

The GAUD has resided on Gov­er­nors Island for two sea­sons, mak­ing areas of the island the sub­ject of its post­grad­u­ate and grad­u­ate research, a test­ing ground for those ideas and a the­ater for schol­ar­ly and civic exchange via exhi­bi­tions, talks and gath­er­ings in and around Nolan Park House 14. The RE:Governors Island projects and the RE:DO exhi­bi­tions envi­sion meth­ods for re-work­ing, sub­tract­ing from and/​or alter­ing assets on the island in rela­tion to its ongo­ing devel­op­ment and future programming.
