The project is the result of a policy implemented by Amanda Burden, New York City Planning director, which aims to foster architectural creation by requiring developers to negotiate air rights at district level, allowing them to build beyond city regulations. This is called the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP).

ASSEMBLE. HOW WE BUILD
June 06, 2017 – September 09, 2017 | Old Hall
Opening: May 31, 2017, 7pm
Press conference: May 31, 2017, 11am

 

How we build, how things are made and materials assemble are crucial elements which show a society’s social, economic and political condition. The work of the London-based collective Assemble engages with changes in these conditions through collaborative action. The members of Assemble established the collective in 2010 following completion of their studies at Cambridge University, and 5 years later they were awarded the Turner Prize, Europe’s most prestigeous prize for contemporary art. Their projects move seamlessly between architecture, the public and urban planning processes.

Urban life in the IVAM Collection
18 May 2016 – 04 June 2017

 

The city is one of the most characteristic symbols of modern society, where millions of people migrate every year in search of a better economy and a freer social and cultural life, to such an extent that more than half the world population lives in urban spaces nowadays. Cities are the spearhead of the most outstanding experiences and the most venturesome behaviours, the place where the arts undergo their greatest development. For that reason, many artists use city life as the central element in their work, cities (often) seen as a collage of myriad memories and discontinuous, fragmented experiences, like a distorted maze where the inhabitants pass each other by lost in their own thoughts.
