Alessandro Orsini, Architensions founding principal has been invited by the Van Alen Institute to present the most recent urban research of the office focused on escapes routes within and outside the city.
From the press release:
Sometimes the bustle and excitement of the city is best appreciated from a distance. Focusing on short visits to or away from the city, we asked six forward-thinking designers to consider escape in and around New York and develop new routes and experiences. Come and be inspired for your next trip out by these exciting proposals that create new connections between communities and places, visit formerly inaccessible pockets, and address the changing tourist ecologies of the city.
Design Presentation and Conversation
