While architecture sets the stage for everyday life, the methods behind its making often remain unseen. In the exhibition Brooklyn in Process, New York City-based practice Marvel Architects invites visitors to consider recent projects from unconventional perspectives. On display are aerial views of buildings alive in the urban fabric, juxtaposed with intimate sketches suggesting design schemes that never came to pass.

A multidisciplinary panel at the A+D Museum examines the promise of DTLA almost a decade after the museum's show Enlightened Development asked the question: How do we foster a "sustainable downtown revitalization"?

Storefront for Art and Architecture's Manifesto Series: Unfinished

17:30 - 1 March, 2016
Storefront for Art and Architecture's Manifesto Series: Unfinished

The act of creating new objects from scratch is often no longer possible for the professional architect given the social and economic contexts of our contemporary world. In some societies, building booms during periods of high economic growth have resulted in a collection of contemporary ruins that are now neglected due to a lack of resources or lack of need for their use. In other contexts, architecture emerges as a result of decision-making processes that allocate minimal resources to the basic human need of habitation. A contradiction thus exists between the architecture commonly presented by the media as finished  forms frozen in time, and architecture that has the capacity to evolve, adapt, and transform. 

This event is organized in collaboration with the project “Unfinished,” curated by Iñaqui Carnicero and Carlos Quintans for the Spanish Pavilion of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.
