Michael Rooks, Jonathan D. Solomon
Workshopping presents projects that involve the architect as the initiator of a trans-disciplinary cooperative team focused on research, social engagement, and private initiative for public benefit. The exhibition assembles a group of architects who are actively redefining the role of the discipline, initiating collaborative projects which stake out exciting new territory. This includes experiments with new materials and structures to produce spaces for public enjoyment, research into how cities and regions can ensure social and environmental sustainability, and examples of how public-private partnerships can generate vibrant communities. It presents Archeworks, cityLAB at UCLA/AUD, Hood Design Studio, MOS, Guy Nordenson, Catherine Seavitt and Anthony Fontenot, John Portman & Associates, Terreform.
