Program Description

From squatters reclaiming neglected buildings as homes, to architects devising alternative residential systems, to “guerilla” public art projects, people of all backgrounds across the globe are increasingly fascinated with finding new ways of approaching their daily lives through altering their physical environments. Is this the manifestation of the desire to build in a time of limited economic and material resources? A reaction to the lack of flexibility in past architectural ventures? Or have the needs of daily life simply evolved past our current configuration of them? Bringing together a team of artists, architects, and scientists, including Felix Burrichter, Editor-in-Chief of Pin-Up Magazine, Eva Franch, Director of Store Front for Art and Architecture and Improv Everywhere, A New Order: Re-appropriations of Space and Life presents case studies for re-imagining our environments and in turn reimagining the very way in which we live.
