By Lydia Kallipoliti
From the space program to countercultural architectural groups experimenting with autonomous living, The Architecture of Closed Worlds documents a disciplinary transformation and the rise of a new environmental consensus in the form of a synthetic naturalism. It presents an archive of 41 historical living prototypes from 1928 to the present that together put forth an unexplored genealogy of closed resource regeneration systems.

Each fall, 100 established and emerging voices in art, architecture, design, philanthropy, and urban development come together for Storefront’s annual Membership Dinner.
The dinner will take place during Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City, a collaboration between Kevin Slavin, Elizabeth Hénaff, and The Living / David Benjamin with Evan Eisman Company that brings together work in biology, data science, material science, and design to flip the notion of a “healthy” city on its sterile head.

Opening September 18th
What are the microbial metrics of our urban spaces?
Subculture brings together work in biology, data science, material science, and design to flip the notion of a “healthy” city on its sterile head. An active metagenomic sequencing laboratory in Storefront’s gallery space will deeply explore the invisible ecologies of our built environment, provoking deeper analysis of the character and evolution of the abundant genetic landscape of our cities.
