Designing in Times of Climate Crisis

Partner exhibition: RAvB and KABK



IABR–DOWN TO EARTH asks: Where can we land?
In response, the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design (RAvB) and the Graphic Design (BA) and Non Linear Narrative (MA) departments of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) are devoting their educational programs to exploring how designers should relate to the climate crisis and what action they can take.
How can we organize our lives and our living environment in such a way that the future is sustainable? How do we deal with the shortcomings of "modernity as a project"? What values should we embrace and what should we say goodbye to?

An activist exhibition
Keen to share the outcomes of their projects with a broader public, the two academies convert the results into an activist exhibition of spatial interventions, specially made for the biennale.
NOW! DESIGNING IN TIMES OF CLIMATE CRISIS is the upshot of the collaboration between IABR and the two Academies within the framework of DOWN TO EARTH, and is curated, designed and produced by students and staff of the KABK and RAvB.
