"The exhibition as a whole is meant to be a call to action at this moment in our history when climate change is one of the most important global challenges facing us today," Baumann told Dezeen.
One million species on the verge of extinction There are 62 projects in the show, covering a wide range of fields. Works are grouped into seven categories: Understand, Simulate, Salvage, Facilitate, Augment, Remediate and Nurture.
