The goal is to understand these events in as holistic a way as possible, considering scientific and humanist questions together, and informed by historical context. We will focus on global linkages between extreme weather events, with a focus on South Asia and the United States. We ask how these disasters reflect the confluence of urban development decisions, natural climate variability, and human-induced climate change. What are the relative roles of urban development decisions, e.g., reclamation, zoning, patterns of land use and urbanization, natural climate variability, and human-induced climate change? How does scientific knowledge and risk get translated and how does the answer depend on where we are in the world and the historical context of local priorities?

Through a series of six panoramic data-visualisation narratives displayed over the course of forty-five minutes on a round screen, the installation \u0022quantifies both voluntary and forced movement across the globe due to political, economic and environmental factors\u0022. In one instance, a glowing map of the world is projected onto the walls, with blooms of light indicating relative responsibility for carbon emissions aggregated by population density; in another, remittances (money sent back by a migrant labourer to his or her nation of origin) are tracked by country, demonstrating that in some nations total remittances received exceed foreign aid. The design of the theatre and installation was such that viewers were literally wrapped in a universe of information, transmitting a sense of both global scale and immediacy that is lacking when these facts are presented through the usual media channels.\u0022\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003E\u003Ca href=\u0022http:\/\/www.domusweb.it\/en\/design\/2011\/05\/15\/states-of-design-01-visualization.html\u0022 target=\u0022_blank\u0022\u003ERead more.\u003C\/a\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E\n"}]},"field_blog_author":[],"field_blog_post_images":{"und":[{"fid":"407","uid":"39","filename":"03_EXIT-001.png","uri":"public:\/\/03_EXIT-001_0.png","filemime":"image\/png","filesize":"9686562","status":"1","timestamp":"1456420247","type":"image","field_image_caption":[],"field_file_image_alt_text":[],"field_file_image_title_text":[],"metadata":[],"alt":"","title":"","width":"2798","height":"1864"}]},"field_posted_date":{"und":[{"value":"2011-06-23 00:00:00","timezone":"America\/New_York","timezone_db":"America\/New_York","date_type":"datetime"}]},"field_news_methods":{"und":[{"tid":"76"},{"tid":"105"}]},"field_news_initiatives":{"und":[{"tid":"79"}]},"field_news_themes":{"und":[{"tid":"84"}]},"field_archive_":{"und":[{"value":"0"}]},"field_external_author":{"und":[{"value":"Paola Antonelli","format":null,"safe_value":"Paola Antonelli"}]},"field_short_title":{"und":[{"value":"Exits reviewed in Domus","format":null,"safe_value":"Exits reviewed in Domus"}]},"field_intro_text":{"und":[{"value":"Domus reviews Exits in their States of Design 01: Visualization: \u0022Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier pour l\u0027art contemporain, in Paris as part of a 2008 exhibition entitled Terre Natale and realised by a stellar team of architects, designers and programmers, Exit is a testimony to the political power of design.\u0022","format":null,"safe_value":"Domus reviews Exits in their States of Design 01: Visualization: \u0026quot;Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier pour l\u0026#039;art contemporain, in Paris as part of a 2008 exhibition entitled Terre Natale and realised by a stellar team of architects, designers and programmers, Exit is a testimony to the political power of design.\u0026quot;"}]},"field_publication":{"und":[{"value":"Domus","format":null,"safe_value":"Domus"}]},"field_news_category":{"und":[{"tid":"117"}]},"field_dashboard_sort_date":{"und":[{"value":"2011-06-23 00:00:00","timezone":"America\/New_York","timezone_db":"America\/New_York","date_type":"datetime"}]},"field_image_for_posting":[],"field_no_image":[],"name":"laura","picture":"0","data":"a:6:{s:16:\u0022ckeditor_default\u0022;s:1:\u0022t\u0022;s:20:\u0022ckeditor_show_toggle\u0022;s:1:\u0022t\u0022;s:14:\u0022ckeditor_width\u0022;s:4:\u0022100%\u0022;s:13:\u0022ckeditor_lang\u0022;s:2:\u0022en\u0022;s:18:\u0022ckeditor_auto_lang\u0022;s:1:\u0022t\u0022;s:7:\u0022overlay\u0022;i:1;}","initiative":"Advanced Data Visualization","sort_date":"August, 2014","pub_link":"","pub_pdf":"","path":"news\/states-design-01-visualization","email":"","image_large":"http:\/\/dev.c4sr.net\/sites\/default\/files\/styles\/c4sr_large_inline_slideshow_980x500\/public\/03_EXIT-001_0.png?itok=xjfHwhSC","image_small":"http:\/\/dev.c4sr.net\/sites\/default\/files\/styles\/homepage-400x300\/public\/03_EXIT-001_0.png?itok=kw6EGmad","image_square":"http:\/\/dev.c4sr.net\/sites\/default\/files\/styles\/square-crop-for-button\/public\/03_EXIT-001_0.png?itok=4Y6FFPu5"},"node_path_alias":"news\/states-design-01-visualization"},{"nid":"103","access":true,"node":{"vid":"103","uid":"16","title":"\u0022Prison Blocks\u0022 - Atlantic Magazine","log":"","status":"1","comment":"1","promote":"0","sticky":"0","nid":"103","type":"news_item","language":"und","created":"1408884149","changed":"1466462226","tnid":"0","translate":"0","revision_timestamp":"1466462226","revision_uid":"1","field_blog_posting":{"und":[{"value":"\u003Cp\u003EThe Atlantic published an article by Laura Kurgan on SIDL\u0027s work in New Orleans:\u003C\/p\u003E\r\n\r\n\u003Cp\u003E\u0022Hurricane Katrina Displaced hundreds of thousands of New Orleans residents; as they\u2019ve returned, their struggles to remake their lives and communities have been well chronicled.
