Reclaim the Triangle was the concluding exhibition & workshop of the From the Ground Up -project in New York. The event showcased the learnings from throughout the residency period hosted by the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York. The event was held in the Cooper Triangle Park in front of the residency partner institution The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.

Reclaim the Triangle presented our residency period findings into the community-based practices in New York City’s climate adaptation. The participants were invited to engage in a Climate Game where they got to envision how they would reshape and occupy the Cooper Triangle area inspired by community-lead efforts from community-based organizations and community gardens to land trusts such as New York’s very first community land trust at the Cooper Square.
