Exclusive: Making Room Exhibition Opening Party

evite

We are so excited to announce that the opening party for the  CHPC’s Making Room museum exhibition will take place on Tuesday January 22nd from 6pm to 8pm at the Museum of the City of New York. The exhibition will then officially open on January 23rd and run until September 2013. To attend this exclusive party, you must send your name to RSVP@mcny.org or call (917) 492-3322.

Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers , organized by CHPC and the Museum of the City of New York,  offers new insights into how our changing social, economic, and cultural lives are re-shaping our housing needs, and presents cutting-edge design innovations that allow our homes to better accommodate the demands of a 21st century urban population.

The exhibition will unveil a built and furnished micro studio apartment for visitors to explore, designed with transformable furniture that ingeniously converts one room into four.   It will present an array of new ideas for safe and comfortable shared housing especially designed for our booming single population, and adaptable homes that can move with the flexibility of a growing and shrinking household. The exhibit will also feature numerous examples of emerging housing types seen in other global cities, including Montreal, Seattle, Hong Kong, and Tokyo, that specifically respond to radical shifts in our housing needs, as well as our new environmental realities.

Making Room will also present the top proposals that came out of the Bloomberg administration’s pilot competition, adAPT, which was launched this summer for developer/architect teams to design a building of studio apartments for small households. The winning submission, showcased in the exhibition, will be developed on a site on East 27thStreet in Manhattan, and will test these new housing ideas in the New York City marketplace.
