24x24x24 is a 24 hour long marathon of events that invites 24 architects and designers to create 24 stools that provide an antidote to over polished, hyper refined, hyperbolic, and expensive design. An opportunity to connect, propose, and engage diverse architectural interests, designers will host an hour of programming in conjunction with their stool during the longest day of the year. From dawn to dusk of the summer solstice, participants will experiment in the collective production of thinking, design, and action.


The stools will remain on display over the course of Storefront’s installation, Architecture Books, from June 19th to August 25th, 2018 as part of the inaugural New York Architecture Book Fair.

Organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut
With Beatriz Colomina, Mark Wigley, and Liam Young
In Conversation with Lydia Kallipoliti
What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each is conceived as a closed system, a self-sustaining physical environment demarcated from its surroundings by a boundary that impedes the transfer of matter or energy. Contemporary discussions about global warming, recycling, and sustainability have emerged as direct conceptual constructs related to the analysis of closed systems. 
From the space program to countercultural architectural groups experimenting with autonomous living, Lydia Kallipoliti’s forthcoming book, The Architecture of Closed Worlds -Or What is the Power of Shit? documents a deeply-rooted fantasy of architecture producing nature, and addresses its manifestation in the very fabric of reality.
Closed Worlds is released in collaboration with Lars Muller Publications and Storefront for Art and Architecture.
Copies of The Architecture of Closed Worlds – Or, What is the Power of Shit? will be available for pre-order from Lars Müller Publishers.

Creating Knowledge: New Ways of Communicating Art and Architecture is the first of a series of talks entitled New Formats: Dream and Nature, presented with RCR Architects and Institut Ramon Llull to represent Catalonia at the Venice Architecture Biennale. Storefront’s Director, Eva Franch, will participate in the event, which draws the public into an intimate space to “build the experience of a dream,” introducing a space to research and reevaluate our relationship to the universe through La Vila Estate in the Bianya Valley. The project unfolds in three phases: “The Threshold,” “The Dream,” and “Geography of Dreams,” transforming RCR’s dreams and inspirations into a highly sensorial experience as a manifestation of a utopia under construction.
