Come see 49 Cities in its first west-coast installation!
An exhibition curated by Amale Andraos and Dan Wood of Work AC, 49 Cities
explores several centuries of unrealized urbanism, all the way from the
Roman city to the great utopian projects of the 20th century. Through
plans, sections, diagrams, charts and scale drawings, 49 cities are
observed statistically and presented in an unprecedented comparative
study, the result of a research project conducted over several years.
This history of utopian urbanism provides a remarkable insight into our
understanding of the contemporary metropolis.
EXHIBIT OPENING: TUESDAY, MARCH 9
Join us for an opening program and reception with 49 Cities curator Dan
Wood, architect and ecological designer Sim Van der Ryn and Jennifer
Wolch, dean of the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design, who will
discuss and debate their varied approaches toward a common goal of
achieving a healthier, more resource-efficient world.
We’ll conclude with a wine-and-cheese reception in the storefront gallery,
where guests will vote on their favorite utopian vision!
