Florida 3.0: Reinventing our Future presents new urban possibilities in response to climate change framed through the perspective of five priorities: Infrastructure, Mobility, Hydro-Ecosystems, The Resilient City, and The New Economy. Florida 3.0 presents an integrated approach to these priorities and challenges inaction by visualizing the ways we could thrive in a watery future. The exhibition brings together the research conducted through the Consortium for Hydro-generated Urbanism (CHU) at the University of Florida that is focused on the history and future of Florida’s water based settlements and hydro-environments within the broader context of new paradigms for the evolution of cities on water from around the world.
