MoMA’s Uneven Growth: Tac­ti­cal Urbanisms for Expand­ing Megac­i­ties

February 1 @ 10:30 am - May 10 @ 5:30 pm
The Museum of Modern Art,
11 W 53rd St., New York, NY 10019 United States
+ Google Map

In 2030, the world’s pop­u­la­tion will be a stag­ger­ing eight bil­lion peo­ple. Of these, two-thirds will live in cities. Most will be poor. With lim­ited resources, this uneven growth will be one of the great­est chal­lenges faced by soci­eties across the globe.

To engage this inter­na­tional debate, Uneven Growth brings together six inter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams of researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers to exam­ine new archi­tec­tural pos­si­bil­i­ties for six global metropolises.

February 1 @ 2:30 pm - March 31 @ 4:30 pm
Kingsland Homestead,
143-35 37th Avenue , Queens, NY United States

Remem­ber­ing is both a col­lec­tive and a per­sonal activ­ity. In this exhi­bi­tion, both are on dis­play in rela­tion to two World’s Fairs that took place in Flush­ing, Queens in 1939/40 and 1964/65.

Within this exhi­bi­tion, col­lec­tive mem­ory is rep­re­sented by shared expe­ri­ences of the Fairs and per­sonal mem­ory by the mem­o­ra­bilia drawn from the col­lec­tions of peo­ple who attended and fondly recall the Fairs.

Open Tues­days, Sat­ur­days and Sun­days, 2:30 – 4:30 pm. Through May 31, 2015.
