Simon Kim and the Dufala Brothers
Imagine an alternative use for vacant lots and scrap yards. ICA Assistant Curator Kate Kraczon moderates a conversation between Simon Kim, PennDesign Assistant Professor of Architecture, and artists Billy and Steven Dufala about their respective reclamation projects, Philadelphia Masque and RAIR (Recycled Artist-in-Residency).
Kim's studio, Ibañez Kim Studio, which he runs with his partner Mariana Ibañez, was recently named one of the four runners-up for the 2012 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP). The Dufala brothers were also part of the team that proposed a Mechanical Garden in partnership with engineers in Philadelphia.
