November 20 – December 11, 1999
Architect Toshiko Mori combines “high-tech” salvage materials from the fashion, medical, and aerospace industries with the “low-tech” method of weaving to propose a new shelter model. This easily fabricated salvage-based unit can be created by and for disaster refugees, but also serves to question the fundamental method of building fabrication. For this exhibition, she presented structural prototypes and diagrammatic materials for gallery visitors to investigate.
Woven Inhabitation was selected by Claudia Gould.
