25 young architects explore controversial issues in an imagined future in the new AIA New York, Center for Architecture exhibit 5X5 Participatory Provocations. Each Team will respond to one of five topics that include drone deliveries, high-rises as financial investments, lux tourism on the Moon, creating NSA community branches, and last, but not least, potentially constructing that Wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
5×5 Participatory Provocations is curated by Julia van den Host, founder Original Copy; Kyle May, founding principal of Kyle May, Architect; and Kevin Erickson, founding principal, KNE Studio, and Associate Professor, The Illinois School of Architecture, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
5×5 Participatory Provocations will open on July 11, with an Opening Reception from 6-8 pm, and on view to September 9, 2017, with a Curator’s Talk on Thursday, July 27th from 6-8 pm. AIA New York, Center for Architecture is located at 536 LaGuardia Place.
Exhibit is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
