Please join us for a curators’ talk on 5×5 Participatory Provocations. Curators will discuss the content of the exhibition focusing on the five categories and what the responses have uncovered.

In 5×5 Participatory Provocations, 25 young architects engage controversial issues in an imagined future, producing physical expressions or provocations. Each team responds to one of five prompts, contemplating the future of drone deliveries, the consequences of luxury high rises as financial investments, luxury tourism on the moon, the fictional development of NSA community branches, and the potential construction of an anti-immigration wall on the border between the US and Mexico.
