About a month ago, while staying in New York, Colleen and I had a chance to see the “Foreclosed” exhibit at MOMA. I thought I would share a bit about it and why we enjoyed it so much.
“The Buell Hypothesis, at its most basic, argues as follows: Change the dream and you change the city. The private house and the city or suburb in which it is situated share a common destiny. Hence, if you change the narratives guiding suburban housing (such as that of the American Dream) and the priorities they imply—including spatial arrangements, ownership patterns, the balance between public and private interests, and the mixtures of activities and services that any town or city entails—then you begin the process of redirecting suburban sprawl.”
So if you are traveling to New York before August 13, I highly recommend taking a few hours to stop into MOMA and check out this great exhibit.
