The Architectural League at 250 Hudson Street is currently showing “The City We Imagined/The City We Made”. The exhibit is a sampling of the projects, some that were realized and some that remained conceptual, over a period of 10 years. The personality of the city during these years, characterized by an obsession with construction, resulted from the convergence of “an array of powerful forces such as September 11, the policies and priorities of the Bloomberg Administration, the volatility of global and local economies, advances in material and construction technologies, and a new interest among the public in contemporary architecture.”
More specifics after the break.
This chronological installation is organized on two sides; the one illustrating proposals and visions for the ‘imagined’ city, while the other side depicts the ‘real’ city with a dynamic set of 1000 photographs (taken by a volunteer group of almost 100 design professionals), videos and interviews.
The exhibit will last through the end of June, and it is located at 250 Hudson Street, entrance on Dominick Street. Exhibition hours: Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 7pm.
