Setup to inform and inspire adaptation and resilience to a changing climate
This a series of design competitions, the aim of which is to help support new and novel approaches for communicating the impacts of climate change and the benefits of mitigation, adaptation and resilience.
THE THEMES WE COVER
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Throughout the world, environmental hazards (such as flooding) can cause catastrophic impacts on communities and their inhabitants. We believe that through good design, research and communication, resilience to such threats can be improved and the outcomes and consequences altered. In our work we strive to help those vulnerable or affected by such conditions to not just survive but thrive against adversity.
HOW WE WORK
We work on projects at a variety of scales (from small scale products right up to large scale masterplanning), with a diverse mix of stakeholders and at a range of different stages (from early concept right through to final creation and construction). Much of the work we do draws on an interelated mix of our core expertise in design, research and communication. The trans-disciplinary blend of skills we have within the practice helps us bring a rigorously grounded and uniquely creative approach to all our projects.
