This exhibition features the work from 13 classes at Pratt Institute, all of which responded to Superstorm Sandy, in Spring 2013. The work chronicles a multi-year program of coordinated planning and architectural studios/urban labs, workshops and conferences that were initiated by Pratt Institute’s Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development (PSPD) and called “Recovery, Adaptation, Mitigation and Planning [RAMP].”
Students and faculty that we part of the RAMP initiative worked closely with community partners/clients to develop plans and strategies for rebuilding and adaptation.
The exhibition featured oversized plywood panels, similar to those that NYC residents used to board up their houses during Superstorm Sandy. Most panels featured a summary of the work carried out in one particular course, while other panels were designed to summarize the exhibition or to prompt visitors to respond to the exhibition content.
