Foreclose: Rehousing the American Dream / MoMA

Watch live streaming video from museummodernart at livestream.com

This weekend, the ArchDaily team will be attending MoMA’s Foreclose: Rehousing the American Dream event featuring open studios and a keynote address by the US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. During this 14-month project, the challenge has forced participants to rethink housing in cities, imagining new architectural possibilities for American cities and suburbs in the context of the recent foreclosure crisis. During the afternoon, the 5 teams (Amale Andraos and Dan Wood of WORK Architecture Company; Michael Bell of Columbia University; Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang; Hilary Sample and Michael Meredith of MOS; and Andrew Zago of Zago Architecture) will open their studios and we cannot wait to see what they’ve been working on.  As the team are comprised of multidisciplinary professionals, we’re excited to see their different approaches for dealing with their selected “megaregion” – a metropolitan area that lies within a corridor between two major cities. Check out MoMA’s site for the event info and maybe we’ll see you there!
