Inexhibit Magazine features article on our “Active Voice” Installation at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale
- By Louise Braverman
We are thrilled to have our 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale installation “Active Voice” published by Inexhibit magazine.
Taking into consideration the particulars of time and place, architects today must engage in active conversations with communities to help give definition to their existence. “Active Voice”, our installation at the “Time Space Existence” exhibition at the 2016 Venice Biennale, is a snapshot of one such conversation. We engaged in a six-year dialogue that produced a series of architectural projects, including prefabricated classroom “buildings” that were integral to the creation of the Staten Island Community Charter School. Families of 86% of the students in the school live below the poverty line.
