Join the PRC for an in-person presentation by Terri Dreyer, founding partner of New Orleans-based architecture firm NANO, that addresses proposed building designs to help make New Orleans neighborhoods stronger and better equipped to deal with climate change, rising tides and the aftermath of intense storms. Originally stemming from NANO’s award-winning exhibit at the 2021 Time Space Existence/Venice Biennale event hosted by the European Cultural Centre, the firm has proposed building multi-purpose “arx” or community hubs strategically placed throughout New Orleans to leverage existing infrastructure for shelter, water and electricity following a hurricane. NANO’s exhibit, “Exist, Survive, Thrive: Bridging the Edge,” was previously presented in Venice and Chicago as part of the “Shaping the City” Venice Biennale symposium. This program is part of PRC's climate change series, which includes online materials and videos on how to prepare your historic property for hurricanes, freezes and other disasters.
