*As of April 9, 2020, this exhibition has been postponed from February 11, 2021 to the fall of 2021. We have also postponed the RFP and will hope to relaunch in the fall of this year. We will share updated RFP and exhibition dates as soon as possible.*

In 2021, the Center for Architecture will present Still Together, an exhibition analyzing architecture’s role in envisioning new dynamics of living and community. Contemporary American culture is increasingly disconnected, with people divided by needs, generations, and beliefs. In the face of social isolation, the exhibition will explore the belief that environments which foster cooperation, interaction, and mutual assistance can be an antidote to the intense divisions in American life.

The negative impacts of social estrangement extend, but are not limited to, the isolation of aging populations and people with physical limitations. Cities, suburbs, and rural areas wittingly and unwittingly separate these groups from larger communities in favor of spaces designed according to age, needs, or income, but their well-being would be improved by active inclusion in society. Still Together will explore how architecture can address this, while helping to create communities that foster inclusion in the broadest of terms.

Co-Curators:
Barry Bergdoll, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Art History and Archaeology, 19th- and 20th-century Architectural History, Columbia University
Juliana Barton, Ph.D. Candidate, History of Art, University of Pennsylvania

Exhibition Designer:
Natasha Jen, Pentagram
