Nahyun Hwang and David Eugin Moon: Post-Scribing

Cornell AAP's John Hartell Gallery, March 17–April 10, 2014.

AAP Spring 2014 Exhibitions

Post-Scribing features selected works of N H D M / Nahyun Hwang+David Eugin Moon, each dealing with conditions of "post" urbanisms, where the existing environments become novel types of tabula rasa that provoke new architectural strategies and potentials for the new city. Located in drastically different cultural, political, and economic conditions, each project engages global sites of variegated yet familiar territorial and architectural typologies of the "afterwards," from the vast brownfield of an American post­-Fordist company town, to a politically charged 1-kilometer-long Modernist linear mega-­structure in Asia, to a vacant office tower complex in a post-bubble Europe. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to juxtapose seemingly unrelated yet tightly connected spaces in global cities, highlighting the new possibilities of architecture in the sustenance and transformation of the city.
