1-Looking Up 1-28-16 - Version 2Thomas Friedman’s ‘Looking Up’ on Park Avenue

In New York City, the month of February will usher in thoughtful exhibits and installations, both indoor and outdoor, highlighting the way we live and work. Technology and the digital arts have arrived with a full-force of exhibits, translating our inner hard-drives into colorful patterns of our everyday web-lives. They are joined by a view of the spaces we live and work in, from our urban boxes to our loft-like live/work spaces.

The Guggenheim Museum will walk hand-in-hand with Times Square Arts and The Public Art Fund to show us How To Work Better.  Life as seen through our artistic endeavors can shine a light on global issues that touch us all and it can present in images conditions in other parts of our world, both past and present. In the end, we are all Looking Up at the same sky, even if not from Park Avenue.

Without further ado, 18 exhibits to check out in February:

18. Structures of Coastal Resilience: Designing for Climate Change

The Center for Architecture will present “Structures of Coastal Resilience: Designing for Climate Change highlighting the effects of catastrophic storms and climate change, and the ways in which the devastation can be addressed. The research initiative, Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR), has been working in the area of developing performance-based designs for flood-prone North Atlantic urban coastal environments. They brought together engineers, science, architects, landscape architects and scholars who worked toward producing in-depth coastal planning and design proposals for areas prone to recurrent coastal flooding.

The results of this work are the focus of this exhibit, and will highlight the tri-state area, specifically Jamaica Bay and Atlantic City. Along with site-specific proposal, a digital overview of research strategies for all sites involved in the study will also be on display.

The exhibit, Structures of Coastal Resilience: Designing for Climate Change will open at The Center for Architecture on February 3, with an Opening Reception at 6 pm.
