Buildings and Almost Buildings

Buildings and Almost Buildings

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
General Public 

Is architecture inherently complete? Or is it a state of incompletion and seeming inadequacy that incites us to imagine architecture as an armature for an ever-changing daily life? Structured around a variety of modes of representation specially prepared for the book, Buildings and Almost Buildings reveals the ways in which the celebrated New York office led by Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang addresses contemporary issues of a world in flux. Across a range of buildings, public spaces, and ephemeral installations, nARCHITECTS argues for the formal and social potential of an architecture that remains somehow incomplete and ambiguously perceived — or in the authors’ words, “Almost Buildings”.

The event is sponsored by the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons School of Design.
