It is projected that sea levels will rise two feet by mid-century and six feet by 2100. The new tideline will transform the coastal landscape of Greater Boston and increase the probability of a major storm devastating the metropolitan region.

Sea Change: Boston examines Boston's vulnerabilities and demonstrates proactive design strategies at the building, city, and regional scale. The exhibition will share research with the broader community in an accessible and engaging format. Events associated with the exhibition will catalyze conversations among designers, city officials, real estate leaders, academics, and community members about a specific call to action: a regional plan for the Greater Boston area.

The exhibition has been developed by Sasaki Associates in partnership with The Boston Architectural College, The City of Boston, and The Boston Harbor Association. Research included in the show is funded in part by The Boston Architectural College.
