The work of the Maryland Urban Research Studio will be exhibited in Brooklyn, NY, April 11–May 9, 2009. The exhibition will feature Ground Work/s, a project created by the studio in 2008.
This design research project examined a possible future for the city of Washington, DC. It was developed during a one-week design charrette for the History Channel's City of the Future: A Design and Engineering Challenge. This award-winning work has been selected as part of an exhibition titled FUTURE.city.past>FORWARD at the d3 gallery in Brooklyn.
The Maryland Urban Research Studio is a collaborative group of faculty, students and alumni from the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The work in this exhibition frames a critical reflection on the urban futurism and the fantastical forms produced across disciplines in examination of urban development from a contemporary perspective.
