Storefront for Art and Architecture presents DRAW-THINK-TANK: Emerging Territories of Movement 15x360 manifestos at the Festival of Ideas for The New City on Saturday, May 7th, 2011 from 4 to 7pm in New York City in collaboration with Audi Urban Future Initiative.

The event will take place in the mobile space structure designed by the German group Raumblabor: the Spacebuster. The Spacebuster will be situated at the intersection of Houston Street and the Sara D Roosevelt Park within the StreetFest.

The event will consist of a live staging of manifestos by a group of 15 individuals consisting of: architects, engineers, writers, sociologists, anthropologists, philosophers and other relevant and emerging figures, followed by a short discussion.

Simultaneously, and in order to foster creativity and reflection, an innovative platform "Draw-Think-Tank" a Storefront ipad platform designed especially for this event with artist Joshue Ott, will allow the participants and a chosen group of students of architecture to collaborate in the construction of a collective drawing projected in the walls of the Spacebuster to expose into the public arena their ideas in a space of synergy and cross collaboration. The mutating drawing will be printed out throughout the event as a series of 360 unique instant manifestos.

The event will be structured in three sessions of 1 hour each where a curated multidisciplinary group individuals will present individually a 4 minute manifesto [7 points and 7 images].


The three sessions, moderated by Christian Gärtner, Director of Stylepark and Eva Franch, Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture, will discuss Emerging Territories of Movement in three different spaces of action:

4-5pm Individual Mobility
5-6pm Collective Spaces of Movement
6-7pm Urbanizing Technologies
