Creation from Catastrophe

This exhibition explores the ways cities and communities have been re-imagined in the aftermath of disasters, whether manmade or natural. It considers the evolving relationship between man, architecture and nature and asks whether we are now facing a paradigm shift in how we live and build in the 21st century. Starting with the five alternative plans for London created after the Great Fire of 1666, the exhibition takes the audience on a journey through 18th century Lisbon, 19th century Chicago, 20th century Skopje, ending in current day Nepal, Nigeria, Japan, Chile, Pakistan and USA.
