ABOUT LETTERS TO THE MAYOR

 

Letters to the Mayor is an itinerant exhibition that displays real letters written by architects to their city mayors. Initiated by Storefront for Art and Architecture in 2014, the project has traveled to more than 18 cities across the globe, including Bogota, Mexico City, Athens, Panama City, Taipei, Mariupol, Madrid, Lisbon, and Buenos Aires, among others. 

 

Letters to the Mayor invites 100 architects in each city to write a letter to their mayor as a means of bringing innovative ideas and visions of the city closer to the decision-makers, and vice versa.

 

Throughout history, architects have engaged with this responsibility and the structures of economic, political, and cultural power in different ways and with varying degrees of success. With the rise of globalization and the homogenization of the contemporary city, the role of the architect in the political arena has often been relegated to answering questions that others have asked. 

 

Letters to the Mayor questions this dynamic, and invites local and global architects to deliver their thoughts directly to the desks of elected officials, and simultaneously into the public consciousness.

OPENING EVENT: BOOM GOES THE CITY: DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT IN TORONTO

Saturday, September 30th from 12:30 – 1:30pm

 

While rapid densification is contributing to Toronto’s prosperity and vibrancy, the unbridled development of homogeneous condo towers is resulting in a significant facelift to the city’s skyline and streetscape.

Toronto’s outgoing Chief City Planner Jennifer Keesmaat, along with Brandon Donnelly (Slate), Alex Josephson (PARTISANS), and Jay Pitter (Author + Placemaker) participate in a conversation in the Funnel Room, home to Letters to the Mayor / Developer: Toronto.

 

Moderator: Eva Franch i Gilabert, Chief Curator and Executive Director, Storefront for Art and Architecture

ABOUT LETTERS TO THE PARLIAMENT

 

Letters to the Parliament is part of Letters to the Mayor, a project initiated by Storefront for Art and Architecture in 2014. This particular iteration is organized in partnership with the Aarhus School of Architecture and RISING Architecture. This project launches on April 28th, where the Exhibition Building at Aarhus School of Architecture transforms into a “Parliament of Architecture”. 

 

Letters to the Parliament is part of the international festival, Rising Architecture. The letters are a prelude for a public debate that will take place on September 11th at the Aarhus School of Architecture. The event is a contribution to ReThink Aarhus, European Capital of Culture 2017.

 

Future Letters

This edition of Letters to the Parliament is the premiere in an open and ongoing series of iterations of this project. To propose an edition in your city, please contact info@storefrontnews.org.

We Like America: An Experimental Road Trip of the Spacebuster

Thursday September 14, 2017 – Saturday October 21, 2017

We Like America: An Experimental Road Trip of the Spacebuster

September 14 – October 21, 2017

 

#welikeamerica    #spacebuster    @storefrontnyc    @ubermutproject    @raumlaborberlin

 

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 kicks off in Chicago during the preview week of the Chicago Architectural Biennale, and then works its way east with pit stops in St. Louis, Cleveland, and eventually arriving in New York in October.

 

About the Spacebuster

The Spacebuster takes the form of a van outfitted with an expanding inflatable bubble that houses up to 120 people. Guests walk through the van and down a ramp into the inflated space. The bubble is supported by air pressure generated by a fan beneath the ramp. The membrane of the bubble is translucent, creating a semi-permeable enclosure; those on the outside can watch those on the inside and vice versa, resulting in a perfect conundrum of private and public space.

 

For more information, please see here.
