About We Like America
We Like America, presented in partnership with Übermut Project, is an experimental road trip of the Spacebuster, a temporary architectural structure designed by raumlaborberlin and commissioned by Storefront in 2009 in order to transform public spaces into impromptu community zones.
Exploring facets of the “American Dream” and seeking out new urban frontiers by transforming nomadic, transgressive, and transitory spaces, the Spacebuster is reprised through We Like America in a journey of the American Rust Belt.
With a multifaceted mission that includes fact finding, observation, and research, We Like America will pop up to investigate and organize around issues of collective societal desire in everyday life. The road trip kicked off in Chicago during the preview week of the Chicago Architectural Biennale, and then worked its way east with pit stops in St. Louis, Cleveland, eventually arriving in New York in October.
