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.

Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City

 

September 19th, 2018 – January 12th, 2019

 

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.
