Architecture Now:
New York, New Publics

February 19, 2023 – July 29, 2023

The Museum of Modern Art

The inaugural installation of a new exhibition series, Architecture Now: New York, New Publics, will serve as a platform to highlight emerging talent and foreground groundbreaking projects in contemporary architecture. As the first iteration of the series, this exhibition will explore the ways in which New York City-based practices have been actively expanding the relationship of metropolitan architecture to different publics. Featuring 12 recently completed projects, New York, New Publics will showcase the works of Adjaye Associates, Agency—Agency and Chris Woebken, CO Adaptive, James Corner Field Operations, Kinfolk Foundation, nArchitects, New Affiliates and Samuel Stewart-Halevy, Olalekan Jeyifous, Only If, Peterson Rich Office, SO – IL, and SWA/Balsley and Weiss/Manfredi. In addition, each project will be accompanied by a new video by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Hudson Lines, produced on the occasion of the exhibition.

Organized by Evangelos Kotsioris, Assistant Curator, and Martino Stierli, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator, with Paula Vilaplana de Miguel, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.

The exhibition is made possible by Allianz, MoMA’s partner for design and innovation, and supporter of programs that look to a more sustainable future.
