Opening Reception: InConstruction: Peter Eisenman

WHEN
Saturday, Feb 15
2 PM

WHERE
Benenson Center

Opening reception for InConstruction: Peter Eisenman, the latest in the InConstruction exhibition series in the Kantor Lobby.

Also on view in the Newmark Gallery, Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand, curated by Warren James and Nalina Moses. Copies of Single-Handedly (2019, Princeton Architectural Press) will be available for purchase and signing by Nalina Moses.

InConstruction: Peter Eisenman presents a model of the Pinerba Condominium, a housing project for Piazza Erba in Milano (2019). The Pinerba Condominium utilizes abstraction and a Milanese typology through different layered materials, constraints and internal functional requirements, and contrasts the notion that its form should come from the orthogonal lines of the surrounding streets, resulting in a curved structure with open spaces for its inhabitants.

InConstruction is an intimate exhibition series at Art Omi that focuses on architecture and design projects, by contemporary architects.
