Out of Water 

Curated by Liat Margolis

Faced with the shortage of water, how will existing and future cities and landscapes adjust to the drastic environmental shift? Out of Water is a response to this looming challenge. The goal of the exhibition is to constructively re-imagine urban futures through the use of water technologies and to delineate an expanded vocabulary of water resources, quality, and infrastructural/architectonic relations to our urban environments. The first part documents a set of contemporary case studies and technologies and tools for collection, conversion, and distribution of water sources in arid climates. The second part showcases the speculative scenarios for a new water culture in arid climates by a select group of young architects, landscape architects, material technologists, and urban planners.
