speculative design

fall 17

in 1933 franklin roosevelt created a pre-nuclear council that coordinated emergency programs for defense that later become more urgent when the soviet union tested a nuclear bomb. currently, this program receives little to no funding and is on the brink of extinction. this project is about the political issues surrounding our current president that are alarming with the threats of “totally destroying with fire and fury” and with the subtle comments with no explanation, “the calm before the storm”. this urges a preparation for the inescapable part of our culture, with or without the help of our democracy.
