Organization: United Nations
Role: Exhibition Designer
The COP 15 climate change conference took place while I was studying design in Copenhagen. At the time, I was in an Interior Architecture studio with 4 other students; we were assigned the task of creating a “transmission center” or a place for conference attendees & inhabitants to learn more about climate & to participate in a cultural dialogue about the planet. Each student chose a different angle to research—I was particularly interested in the effects of climate for animals.
My exhibition contained furniture that would be made from recycled tires, straw & resin. In the far end, an enclosed, grassy mound would provide a space for visitors to video tape themselves sharing input.
