Classic Six

2010

From Floor Plans to Confections Patterns: Apartment House in New York City 1900-1914.

Upper Main Gallery, Abrons Art Center, New York.

This project received the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.

 

 

Drawing on the archives of the New York Public Library on Classic Six apartments, I conducted an interdisciplinary project, located in the crossroads between architecture, drawing, sculpture and clothing.

 

 

This project explores elements of how the city became what it did. Using this as a starting point, the project more importantly delves in to how our modern cities are shaped, what is the concept of a home in such a city and how space is becoming more and more of a rarity and commodity in today’s world.
