2011 Subway Exhibition
Building on the success of our past subway exhibitions, the AIA New York Chapter / Center for Architecture will open New York New Work in October of 2011 at the West 4th Street subway station.
In an effort to show the range of design ideas generated by AIA New York Chapter members during our economic down-turn, this year’s call includes un-built competition entries, theoretical projects and design research, in addition to commissioned projects around the world by Chapter members. New York New Work solicits works of all scales and types – small, large, commercial, residential, public, private, interiors, historic preservation, engineering, landscape and urban design – presenting the scope and quality of work being done by AIA New York Chapter members across the globe.
This highly visible exhibition will offer a snapshot of current practice and celebrate the diversity of the Chapter’s membership. AIA New York Chapter members are invited to participate by submitting up to four (4) projects for display in the subway station for the month of October. In addition to the work exhibited in the subway station, all entrants will be included in an online gallery on the Chapter's website (with links to their websites). New York New Work will be promoted as part of Archtober, a month-long festival of architectural activities, programs, and exhibitions in New York City, organized by the Center for Architecture in collaboration with other institutions, including the Cooper-Hewitt, Design Trust for Public Space, openhousenewyork and many others.Read more...
