June 9, 2011


Barry Bergdoll

Barry Bergdoll, MoMA's Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design, introduces the museum's Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream exhibition in this blog entry, which describes how five interdisciplinary teams (including Studio Gang's) have been selected to rethink housing, regional planning, and transportation systems for American cities and suburbs in light of the foreclosure crisis. The teams' projects will aim to challenge cultural assumptions concerning home ownership and associated settlement patterns, such as suburban sprawl, and assist the public in contemplating a potentially different future for housing and cities.
