Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip Hop Architecture (and more virtual exhibits)

Center for Architecture (New York)
Exhibition Dates: 
Jul. 06, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2020

Hip-Hop Architecture is a design movement that embodies the collective creative energies native to young denizens of urban neighborhoods. Its designers produce spaces, buildings, and environments that translate hip-hop’s energy and spirit into built form. Some 25 years in the making, Hip-Hop Architecture is finally receiving widespread attention within the discipline of architecture thanks to a series of influential essays, lectures, and presentations by Craig Wilkins, Michael Ford, and this show’s curator, Sekou Cooke.

The Center for Architecture in New York is now featuring online access to several of its major exhibitions including Topiary Tango and Single-Story Project.
