Sea levels are getting set to rise, and this is going to be a problem for everyone — but especially for those of us living in coastal cities such as Fort Lauderdale and Venice Beach. That's why the progressive, Los Angeles–based architecture firm Brooks + Scarpa chose those two cities as the case studies for their insightful, research-based reimagining of a particularly wet, and salty, urban future. Architects might not be able to solve the impending ecological pressures but they are particularly well-equipped to help locales cope while we figure out global solutions. "Salty Urbanism," an exhibition of the project's findings, renderings and warnings, is on view at USC, where Lawrence Scarpa is on faculty, and will feature a lecture by Scarpa and his partner at the firm, Angela Brooks, at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10.
