Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement

Red Location Museum in South Africa

Luckily there is still work being done that if not actually changes things in the world for the better, it aims to. With that said I’m very excited to see this exhibition at the MoMA, featuring the work of architects around the world that are designing with more than just a structure in mind. From a museum in South Africa, to a metro cable in Venezuela that connects a city, to housing for fisherman in Lebanon, to a hand-made elementary school in Bangladesh. In my estimation it is important that work which is socially and humanely conscious exists and thrives.
