Join us for the opening of This Future Has a Past.

A multimedia installation that reflects on the life of Gregory Ain, FAIA (1908–1988), and his 1950 Exhibition House for the MoMA garden, the progressive architect’s last significant building. This Future Has a Past retraces the mysterious fate of the house and unearths an extraordinary moment in Ain’s personal history. Originally organized for an exhibition in the 15th International Venice Biennale of Architecture. Presented in cooperation with Anyspace.
