SUPERFRONT LA’s first exhibit of 2010 will address the urban scale. The group exhibit will span architecture, urban design, and urban planning to present emergent urbanism, “wild building”, and other alternatives to conventional modes of planning cities. Dealing with urban topics from derelict construction sites to refugee camps, favellas, temporary housing and other contemporary spatial phenomena, the exhibition will confront the current economic crises and larger issues of globalization. Work will be exhibited in multiple formats, from physical models to drawings, animations, video games or experimental formats.
