This installation draws from acquisitions made over the past two years by the Department of Architecture and Design, many exhibited here for the first time. The selection represents the diversity found in contemporary design practice, with a focus on the latest innovations in architectural, industrial, and graphic design. Highlights include Mattias Bengtsson’s Spun Chaise Lounge, woven from carbon fiber on a robotic arm developed by NASA; videos and drawings of Diller + Scofidio’s ephemeral mist construction, the Blur Building; and a selection of designs from the graphic design firm 2×4.

Organized by Paola Antonelli, Curator, and Christian Larsen, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.
