New Local / Living
Please join us on October 27th from 12-6pm at A/D/O for New Local / Living, a workshop that Partner Emily Abruzzo has co-organized with Chris Leong to explore what it means to live in an urban center, what new typologies of housing are needed to meet changing patterns of living, and how we can define "neighborhood" today.
Asking how the city can become a 'laboratory' for living to create a more diverse and equitable future, New Local / Living is one in a three-part series of half-day workshops titled New Local: Finding Ground within Global Uncertainty, sponsored by AIANY's New Practices Committee in collaboration with Arup, A/D/O, MINI Living, and Pratt Institute. Examining locality and its conditions, the events bring together designers, engineers, policy makers, community leaders, entrepreneurs, developers, housing advocates, and engaged citizens in half-day workshops to exchange ideas and develop tangible goals that will shape the future of urban living in New York City.

Light and Air
Abruzzo Bodziak has contributed work to “Souvenirs: New New York Icons,” now open at New York’s Storefront for Art and Architecture. The exhibit, which opened as part of New Museums’ IdeasCity Festival, asks contributors to consider a specific area of the city, proposing a new icon for that community. ABA’s “Light and Air” project looks at the window as an icon for the right to housing for all.
5x5 Provocative Presentations
At a roundtable talk at New York’s Center for Architecture on September 28th, Gerald and Emily talk about their project, “I’m In,” produced for the traveling exhibit “5x5 Participatory Provocations.” One of several themed projects, "I’m In" references the unknown extents of the NSA by considering how an object can, with the help of the viewer, contain the infinite.
