The Global Polis: Interactive Infrastructures
The Global Polis: Interactive Infrastructures

This exhibition at the Center for Architecture New York questioned how the idea of infrastructure can be extended to consider community, identity, and history. Low-cost and flexible, the exhibition design used a series of brightly painted homasote panels upon which the exhibition materials were mounted. With the ideas of Otto Neurath in mind, a single newsprint publication functioned simultaneously as the container for all curatorial and project texts, as well as a compact take-away—a highly-portable exhibition. In conjunction with the exhibition, a series of three multi-disciplinary workshops took place to generate discussion about civic participation, urbanism, and design. Drawings and diagrams from these workshops were incorporated into the exhibition as an evolving presentation of ideas.
