We invite you to join us tomorrow, Saturday, June 18, at MoMA PS1 for Open Studios, where you can meet the five interdisciplinary teams working on solutions to the foreclosure crisis in the U.S., hear about their projects, and see work in progress.
Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art and Columbia University’s Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture. Jointly conceived and curated by Barry Bergdoll, MoMA’s Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design, and Reinhold Martin, Director, the Buell Center, the workshop and exhibition will examine new architectural possibilities for American cities and suburbs in the context of the recent foreclosure crisis.
Each of the five interdisciplinary teams is focusing on a specific “megaregion,” and are producing work during a workshop phase at MoMA PS1 to be included in the exhibition at MoMA opening in January 2012. The workshops are open to the public in an effort to highlight the process of architecture.
For those of you unable to attend in person, we will attempt to provide live video of the presentations to the public on our Facebook page and on our Livestream page. Video of the presentations will also be available next week for the public to review.
