In this talk Interboro will discuss its innovative, advocacy-based approach to architecture and urban planning by presenting projects old and new, including “LentSpace,” a 30,000 square foot sculpture space in lower Manhattan, “Community: The American Way of Living,” a submission to the American wing of the 2009 International Biennale Rotterdam (which Interboro co-curated), and “NORCS in NYC” a guidebook to New York City’s “Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities.”
Interboro is a New York City-based research and design group founded in 2002 by Tobias Armborst, Daniel D’Oca, and Georgeen Theodore. Through writing, teaching, and professional practice, Interboro engages with the complexity of the contemporary city. The firm has won many awards for its projects, including the New Practices Award from the AIA New York Chapter, and the Architectural League’s Young Architects Award. Its work has been exhibited at the Netherlands Architecture Institute, Walker Art Center, Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Center for Architecture, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, and the German Architecture Museum.
