The Buell Center will be hosting a public forum entitled What Is Foreclosed? Housing, Suburbanization, and Crisis, which marks the opening of Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream, an exhibition co-organized by the Museum of Modern Art and the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture. The event will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2012, in the Low Memorial Library Rotunda at Columbia University. An interdisciplinary group of scholars, activists, and architects, will debate the future of American housing, cities and suburbs and the cultural narratives that have accompanied the home foreclosure crisis and the economic crisis more generally. More information on the event after the break.

The exhibition features innovative architectural projects for five American suburbs in the context of the recent foreclosure crisis. The forum will use these projects as a point of departure to explore issues engaged by architecture and urbanism when considered in a cultural, political, and economic context. The projects respond to The Buell Hypothesis, a research document that revises the dominant cultural narratives guiding the “American Dream” regarding homeownership by emphasizing the many “public” dimensions of housing.
