What if mobile, self-sufficient living units were the building blocks for future cities? In a time when growing urban populations are faced with environmental, political, and economic instability, and when human and societal dislocation and relocation increasingly erode stable notions of dwelling, Eyebeam Fellow Mary Mattingly's Flock House project represents a group of migratory, sculptural living systems built collaboratively from reclaimed materials that merge with preexisting urban infrastructure. Join us for a conversation between Mary and Geoff Manaugh, author of the influential architecture blog BLDG BLOG and director of Studio-X NYC, the founding node in Columbia University's network of advanced research laboratories exploring the future of cities.
The Urban Research Group conversation series aims to address the underlying issues, ideas and interests that drive the research of its current fellows.
