Innovative Samoan community project exhibition now online


NIWA collaborated with Atelierworkshop Wellington on the pilot project, which aimed to help mitigate vulnerability of a Samoan community to tsunamis and climate change, combining architectural, scientific and anthropological approaches to research.

The exhibition, titled “Shifting Paradigm: The Village of Sa’Anapu, Samoa” was hosted by the National Museum of Samoa this year, but is now available in digital form and can be viewed below.
