Claire Wood & Gabriel Fries-Briggs: Stadtwald

Claire Wood and Gabriel Fries-Briggs were trained as architects. Their work shies away from novel form-making in favor of uncovering unfamiliar forms in everyday rituals, experiences, and environments. Refusing to believe that urban life is as rigid as it can appear, their projects try to make the city more flexible, looser, squishy, and slow. Working through drawing, video, text, web, and built work, they create projects that can fit hundreds of people, fit in a pocket, or barely exist at all. They live and work in New York and New Jersey.

Die beiden Architekten sammeln über eine Woche Material zu ausgewählten Bäumen im Stadtgebiet. Die Bewohner sind dazu aufgerufen bestimmte Bäume mit Hinweisen, Fundstücken und Dokumentationsmaterial vorzuschlagen und die Sprechstunden aufzusuchen. Schlagen Sie Ihren Baum vor!
