A lot of interesting exhibitions continue their run this month. Our current spotlight falls on the collaborative exhibition, GLIMPSES of New York and Amsterdam in 2040 (June 8 – September 10, 2011). The exhibition highlights work by architects in both cities and delves into the future of daily life in both these cities and related planning issues.
ARCAM and the Center for Architecture, in collaboration with Urban Progress, commissioned architects and landscape architects in both cities to contemplate the “future of the future,” with an emphasis on five basic necessities for living: breathing, eating, making, moving, and dwelling. Each glimpse is a powerful statement on the future of daily life in New York and Amsterdam. Combined, they provide insight into the way in which the cities may address long-term planning issues.
