CITY X ECOLOGY explores solutions to marginalized urban problems in the cities of Miami and Belem (Brazil). What are the commonalities between these two cities? A complex relationship with their neighboring ecology. The design process for the projects presented in this exhibition began with an analysis of the relationship between human-altered and non-human-altered environments in both cities.
Students have conducted extensive research, and as their proposals become clearer and well-formulated, they are exploring multimedia methods to display their ideas and collect on-site observer information.
This event, allows the students to present their project with captivating displays using projection, sound, and other multi-sensory methods of communication. The event’s purpose is to expose observers to unseen urban problems, wild ideas, and to engage them through on-site data collection.
