On Tuesday night, Storefront for Art and Architecture held their membership dinner and preview for their upcoming exhibit at their gallery space at 97 Kenmare Street.
A well-heeled crowd of architects and designers packed into the tight space, and perused the art surrounding them. The current exhibit in the gallery is called “Work in Progress,” and showcases reimagined existing construction projects (i.e. a supertall building going up in SoHo or an inverted skyscraper on Madison Avenue). A private preview of Storefront’s upcoming exhibit, “Letters to Developers,” was also on display, and featured letters by architects, critics and policymakers to developers (one was addressed to Donald Trump and began, “I do not like anything you built”).
Among the prominent guests at the event were Steven Holl, Nader Tehrani, Caroline Hirsch, Andrew Esiebo, Rodman Primack, Mary Ellen Carroll, Anthony Vidler, Michael Sorkin, Curtis Kulig, Amy Lau, Barry Bergdoll, Florence Derieux, Dominic and Chris Leong, and Frederieke Taylor.
