Moving Together at Biennale Architettura 2021

Interdisciplinary teams affiliated with MIT’s Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism (LCAU) present the exhibition Moving Together, which opens at the As One Planet Station, Giardini, Central Pavilion at Biennale Architettura 2021 in Venice, Italy. In the next three decades, up to 150 million people are projected to have to relocate due to natural hazards accelerated by climate change. Moving Together, presents designs and research on how communities can move together—peacefully, justly, and productively with self-governance—and on the agency of design and planning in this process.

Moving Together presents three case studies by faculty, researchers, and students at MIT that explore resilient, equitable, and voluntary community relocation in high mountain, river delta, and coastal urban environments. Moving Together at the Biennale Architettura 2021 opens a critical public discussion on how the agency of design and planning can unlock the complex processes, choices, and available means and materials to enable community to move together from relocation planning to implementation.
