For all of New York’s rich cultural offerings, few events have been as eagerly anticipated as the re-opening of the Museum of Modern Art. Following a major expansion by DS+R and Gensler, work by Miller Professor and Chair of Architecture Winka Dubbeldam is now on view in the newly reinstalled collection galleries.
Suspended Armature and Twist Me were produced by Dubbeldam’s firm, Archi-Tectonics.
The designs were originally exhibited in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab at New York's Frederieke Taylor Gallery as a holographic installation studying the transformative qualities between object and environment. They were based on the firm's prior work with a private home in Upstate New York.
Martino Stierli, Philip Johnson Chief Curator of the Architecture and Design Department at MoMA writes, “The collection galleries explore a wide range of topics, from a specific medium or discipline, to a particular place, moment in time, or shared creative idea. They have been conceived by teams of curators from all fields and at all levels collaborating closely. An ongoing program of frequent reinstallation will feature a wide range of artworks in new combinations—a reminder that countless ideas and histories can be explored through the Museum’s rich collection.”
