Fifth Dimensional Cities is Architensions’ first solo exhibition of its current and theoretical work. The title is taken from the introduction of their first book “Forma Urbana” recently published in Europe by Libria and presented in the US in occasion of this exhibition.
The studio presents five architectural models and “urban drawings” illustrating five projects located in different cities around the world. These drawings aim to capture the energy and specificities of each site and become a lens for observation and signature of the studio.
Architensions refuses to separate architecture from urbanism, an opposing today’s tendency to design deliberately iconic one-off buildings, and propose a paradigm antithetical modern capitalism, giving back to architecture its autonomous form.
This exhibition was made possible in collaboration with The Java Project in Brooklyn, a gallery which advocates for artists, curates exhibitions and fosters an educational discourse in the arts and it is curated by Dakota Sica.
