In collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art
September 17, 2011, MoMA PS1
The workshop phase of Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream, came to an end on Saturday September 17, 2011, with a series of Open Studios with the five architects-in-residence teams at MoMA PS1. Each team presented their proposals to visitors, with nearly completed models and renderings.
The Open Studios were followed by a keynote address, titled “From Crisis to Opportunity: Rebuilding Communities in the Wake of Foreclosure,” by U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan. The closing panel discussion, with Mohsen Mostafavi, Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Dean of the Miami School of Architecture, was moderated by Reinhold Martin and Berry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art.
In the upcoming months Buell will be in collaboration with MoMA on the next phase of the exhibition, which includes working on the catalogue and developing a plan for how to exhibit the work in MoMA’s Architecture and Design Gallery. Follow the continued discussion on MoMA’s Inside/Out Blog and look forward to a Buell Symposium in Columbia University’s Low Library Rotunda on February 18, 2012.
