STAR APARTMENTS IN “TOGETHER! THE NEW ARCHITECTURE OF THE COLLECTIVE” AT THE VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM
Star Apartments is featured in “Together! The New Architecture of the Collective,” an exhibition currently on view at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Curated by Ilka and Andreas Ruby and EM2N, the exhibition stress the history of social housing both past and present.
Star Apartments, the only US project in the exhibition, is featured in the exhibition’s second section where 21 large-scale models of contemporary housing experiments are assembled to create a fictitious city for visitors to explore. In reality these projects can be found in cities as diverse as Los Angeles, Berlin, Zurich, Tokyo, and Vienna. The context of the imaginary city shows that many of these projects blur the boundaries between living space and urban space, between private and public sphere.
“Together! The New Architecture of the Collective” will be on view until September 10, 2017.
