The New York times on the MoMa exhibition, Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement

 

My images will appear in the upcoming exhibition at the MoMA in New York, titled Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement. Organized by Andres Lepik, Curator, and Margot Weller, Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Architecture and Design, the exhibition presents eleven architectural projects on five continents that respond to localized needs in underserved communities. I documented three intricate, inspiring and beautiful projects located in vastly different contexts: Michael Maltzan’s Inner-City Arts in Los AngelesNoero Wolff’s Museum of Struggle in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and Urban Think Tank’s Metro Cable in Caracas, Venezuela. The projects expressed a deep interconnection to community and place, making them a joy to document. The exhibition opens October 3 and runs through January 3, 2011.
