A structure shaped like a fish in construction

The Bartlett’s Professor CJ Lim is exhibiting at the Royal Academy of Arts’ 250th Summer Exhibition, which is open until 19 August. 

CJ’s first project on display is called ‘Emergency habitat for sea-level threatened nations’ and uses a floating fish-like infrastructure to protect and provide for islanders facing climate change.

His second contribution, ‘Ecological landscapes for urban resilience’, encourages green interventions that cultivate not only food but also new spatial practices and greater social cohesion.
