Developer X is an installation piece by Reigo & Bauer that chronicles a fictional, philanthropic, vigilante developer, who during the night anonymously drops Pre-Fab modern houses on empty lots throughout the city.
Troubled by the disconnect between our present day lifestyles and new housing that emulates the past, Developer X believes that Torontonians, given the chance, will embrace contemporary houses – houses designed to suit our current ways of living and adopt new and innovative technologies in construction and design.
Residential architecture that looks forward, not backwards, is a plausible alternative. This installation will be included in Neighbourhood Maverick, an exhibition that opens at Toronto’s Harbourfront Gallery today until June 12. For more information, click here.
