Presentation by Joe Meppelink (Metalab Studio): How Houston Reacts to Climate Change: The Innovations of Metalab Studio

A founding principal of METALAB, a multi-disciplinary design firm in Houston, Texas, Joe Meppelink pursues resiliency and sustainable technologies. In response to extreme conditions with a lack of grid power, hurricane force winds, and storm surge flooding, Meppelink and METALAB have invented and deployed a range of tactical and technological responses. These projects range from a containerized, solar-powered, off-grid field office to modular farming and growing systems to elevated hurricane-resistant housing systems. While each of these addresses a critical issue, Meppelink finds that a similar ethos informs other projects (such as public parks and a fleet of river boats) in unexpected ways.
