Modelling Kivalina is comprised of artists and architects based at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London. The group consists of Andrea Bagnato, Helene Kazan, Daniel Fernández Pascual, Hannah Meszaros Martin, and Alon Schwabe. Modelling Kivalina was formed in 2012 when the group was invited by the Anchorage-based Re-Locate project to work in the Inupiaq village of Kivalina, Alaska. The research is funded in part by the World Justice Project, a Seattle-based organization that supports initiatives seeking to promote the rule of law. Modelling Kivalina aims to facilitate planning negotiations between residents and governmental agencies in Alaska through the use of visual techniques, in order to develop new ways of engaging with the issue of climate displacement worldwide.
