This program is related to the exhibition The Future of the New York Metropolitan Area: The Fourth Regional Plan.
Meeting our need for housing in New York is tough. We need to build more homes – but we also need to do more with what we have. Better using existing buildings and smaller lots, and finding other creative ways of making room for more people to live is imperative to solving our housing crisis. It’s also no less important for our city that this type of new housing is as livable and well-designed as other more traditional housing.
Join RPA, the Center for Architecture, The Architectural League of New York, local architects, and others to explore how we can create alternative housing such as basement apartment, accessory dwelling units, and small infill, in a way which adds to our built environment and produces the type of quality housing we need.

|Please join us for the opening of The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion: New York Edition!
The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion: New York Edition presents 153 “weapons” utilized by architects, planners, policymakers, developers, real estate brokers, activists, and other urban actors to restrict or increase access to urban space. It inventories these weapons, describes how they have been used, and speculates about how they might be deployed (or retired) to create more open, accessible cities.
Sales of the book the exhibition is based on, The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion, will be launched at the opening and will be available for purchase until the exhibition closes.
Curated and designed by: Interboro Partners.
Organized by: Center for Architecture
The auction took place last night and by all accounts it was a huge success. The venue was sold out, again, and the vibe was very festive. All the teams outdid themselves and I can only imagine what will be dreamed up next year. As a little background the Sustainable Quilt Auction was formed 6 years ago as a way for the architecture + design community in New York to get together, much like traditional quilting bees, and explore their creativity in ways they don’t do usually get a chance to do 9-5. The house rules state that the quilts must be queen size or better and made from discontinued fabric from our industry, thus re-purposing what would have ended up in a land fill. Below are images of all the quilts. In advance, please excuse my poor photography.
Much thanks to The Open House Gallery for a wonderful venue, and also to Abigail, Suzette, Miguel and Brian without whom this never would have happened.
The City as Canvas
Opening Feb 4th at The Museum of the City of New York
Martin Wong, an East Village artist and collector of graffiti art, amassed a treasure trove of hundreds of works on paper and canvas—in aerosol, ink, and other mediums. The artists, including Keith Haring, Lee Quiñones, LADY PINK, and FUTURA 2000, were seminal figures in an artistic movement that spawned a worldwide phenomenon, altering music, fashion, and popular visual culture. The exhibition City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection begins with photographs of graffiti writing long erased from subways and buildings.
Wong, who died of AIDS in 1999, donated his collection to the City Museum in 1994.
The companion publication for City as Canvas is sponsored by Mrs. Florence Wong Fie and The Martin Wong Foundation.
This should be a fantastic show, definitely worth a visit. You should support wonderful institutions that bring such decidedly NY events to us.
