As climate change fuels the unsettling forces of disturbance and displacement, designers and planners face the urgent task of re-imagining our approaches to city (re)making. Emotional Infrastructure fills a gap in design processes by centering place attachments and meanings, and including multiple place narratives to foster belonging and stability through upheaval and change. This case study of post-earthquake Christchurch, New Zealand defines emotional infrastructure as the social and spatial aspects of place that support emotional processing, sense of belonging and a collective capacity for care, while demonstrating its critical role in design and planning for disturbance more broadly. Check out the corresponding video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3hU5RciEKs&feature=youtu.be

Congratulations to Laura Durgerian for this CELA Award-winning thesis project!

Erosion — inundation — migration — opportunities
 
“As the oceans water level increases, it will fill any nook and cranny, any gap, any low point, any void that can be found, taking more of what is now land and making it water. In these drawings, Asya Snejnevski @asyasnej (MLA 2020) explores how sea level rise is affecting or will affect different coastal areas around New Zealand and asks, what will happen? What can be done? Where does the future lie?
