Delirious D.C. A Proactive De-Composition for the District of Columbia


Delirious D.C. investigates the mechanisms and motivations of conflict between the District of Columbia and its Federal residents. Catalyzed by climate change and restrictive regulations, Federal holdings in the city will become increasingly intermingled with the areas of private real estate speculation. Restricted by a stringent height limit, growth in the District occurs laterally, rather than vertically.

A drinking game for two people, Delirious D.C. maps these zones of collaboration and competition, and catalogues the new public-private adjacencies that may develop. As the District re-laminates itself, analyzing and projecting these new territories is crucial to understanding the specific impacts of climate change-driven relocation in Washington D.C.

Delirious D.C. has been exhibited as part of "The Ecotopian Toolkit Pop-Up Exhibition" at the University of Pennsylvania, "Win-Win in a World Without Money" at the Museum of Capitalism, and the "Imagining America Media Salon" at the Jan and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum.
