Rio+20 is an international conference sponsored by the United Nations to promote dialogue, debate, and commitment to a green economy as a means to achieve sustainable development and eradicate poverty in the world. From 20 – 22 June, 2012, Rio will witness the gathering of 50,000 people from 193 nations, including world leaders, and representatives from key sectors of civil society
Mona Kim collaborated with ORB to propose public installation concepts for its client Fundaćčo Getulio Vargas which would encourage participation and interaction from the citizens of Rio during this high-profile international event.
7 site-specific installations in key points of the city were proposed to bring the conference to the city.
All installations were conceived around 1 consistent identity - a sphere - with 7 diverse approaches and treatments.
Each installation addressed contents specific to each of theme, using clever sustainable construction methods and materials (thanks to RaichdelRio Estudi d'Arquitectura), and integrating sensitive and meaningful interactions.
