Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement at MoMA

moma small scale exhibition
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
11 West Fifty-third Street
New York, 10019

Organized by MoMA, the exhibition focuses on 11 major architectural projects in underserved communities around the world: Alabama, Bangladesh, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Chile, Lebanon, Los Angeles, Paris, South Africa, Southern California, and Venezuela. Confronting inequality via the tools of design, these architectural projects engage social, economic, and political conditions by developing post-utopian architectural interventions beginning with an understanding of and deference to a community. In each of these projects, ranging from schools to housing to community centers to infrastructural interventions, the architect is as much a moderator of social processes as a designer of a structure.

The exhibition runs from October 3, 2010 to January 3, 2011 in the third floor galleries.
