Roca London Gallery are delighted to announce that out exhibition ‘Sea Change: Flood Resilient Architecture for the 21st Century’ has been extended until the end of the year, as part of our ongoing cultural programme. As seen in The Guardian and the Evening Standard, this exhibition explores how architectural practices are adapting to rising sea levels by enabling us to ‘live with water’.
Examples include BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group’s winning scheme for a flood defence strategy that doubles as a public park, preventing a repeat of the extensive flooding experienced by Lower Manhattan in the face of Hurricane Sandy, and Zaha Hadid Architects’ sculptural Niederhafen River Promenade in Hamburg. Copenhagen based practice SLA have developed a scheme whereby flood water can be channeled through ‘blue-green’ infrastructure solutions, feeding into urban wetlands.
The future of flood resilient architecture is here, visit this fascinating exhibition to learn more.
