Enter into the tented home of a nomadic Moroccan Berber and let the distinctive smell of camel-hair wool transport you to another world.

See photographs and films showing how an estimated 30 to 40 million nomadic people in the world today have adapted to life in often harsh environments around the globe. Whether living in fixed, mobile or temporary homes, nomads share a life of movement. The exhibition shows the variety of responses through the architecture of their lives.

From the tundra to the tropics, in the seas, deserts and across the plains diverse nomadic lifestyles are under threat. The effects of climate change, the encroachment of sedentary populations and competition for natural resources are all taking their toll. Nomads is a record of ancient cultures and modern adaptations.
