Check back regularly for more event recommendations!
Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal will share what projects their firm has been working on as of late. Based in Paris, the Lacaton & Vassal focuses on designing public buildings, housing, and urban planning.
Displayed at Columbia GSAPP through December 17, this exhibition traces the common history between Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City scheme and the development of public housing in Upper Manhattan’s Harlem neighborhood. The ever-timely exhibition shows “how two different approaches to housing combine societal aspiration with racial segregation and socioeconomic inequality, and asks: How to live in America, together?”
Opening at the Museum of Arts and Design, this multi-component exhibition features interactive installations, immersive environments, and performing objects that explore how the ephemeral and abstract nature of sound is made material...[The] auditory provides a compelling sensory experience that is capable of reorienting the body to consider spatial and interpersonal relationships anew.”
Themed around “100 Actions for the Future City,” IdeasCity New York will be “a daylong investigation of strategies, ideas, and propositions featuring artist talks, initiatives by local organizations, performances, workshops, and a discussion panel of mayors. A distinguished roster of participating artists, architects, activists, and community builders will present an array of innovative ideas.”
