And with climate change and rising sea levels continuing to occur worldwide, it's never too early to start preparing for what natural disasters may lie ahead. Students at the Florida International University School of Architecture took a proactive approach to this grim outlook with the exhibition, <em>Miami 2100: Envisioning a Resilient Second Century</em>, currently at the <a href="http://coralgablesmuseum.org" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Coral Gables Museum</a> until March 1.</p><p>Funded by the National Science Foundation, the exhibition showcases the projects conducted by graduate research studios and seminars in the school's Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture over the course of three years. With a solution-driven focus in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design, <em>Miami 2100</em> includes models, drawings, video interviews, and various digital materials and projections.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/33/336rmo5atnqcrcy7.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/63/63tot4bx8py7eb40.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/tl/tlgmsces5r5gfkni.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/n8/n8huonklt3igce1i.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/dr/dra1og5409g6c3xe.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/jy/jyouem2dtzcnkr9k.jpg"></p><p>Find more exhibition photos <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/fiucarta/sets/72157650202948491/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/115572057/jeanne-gang-s-thinning-ice-exhibit-in-miami Jeanne Gang's "Thinning Ice" exhibit in Miami Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-12-09T12:40:00-05:00 >2014-12-11T19:13:30-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/a9/a92422a96863795cc2b1f2fabae1ea34?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/a9/a92422a96863795cc2b1f2fabae1ea34?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/a9/a92422a96863795cc2b1f2fabae1ea34?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/a9/a92422a96863795cc2b1f2fabae1ea34?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>[Jeanne Gang] had just come back from a trip on which she&rsquo;d been using binoculars with Swarovski lenses and had become intrigued by the optical aspect of the crystal company&rsquo;s output.
