SOFTlab was invited by curators Christina Vasallo and Adam Henry to the show System:System, opening this coming Friday at 21 Monitor Street in Brooklyn. The show, in the words of the curators:
A failing economy has decided the recent fate of 21 Monitor Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Formerly a nun’s convent, the grand three-story house now stands uninhabited due to the declining membership of St. Cecilia parish and its sister school. Rather than let the building fall into disrepair the parish has found ways to breathe new life into it through a rotating schedule of film shoots, screenings, dance performances, and art exhibitions.
So many thanks to Brandt Graves and Carrie McKnelly for the invaluable help putting the show together.

I made it last night to the WILDCHILD show at the Bridge Gallery. The work on display is absolutely fantastic and the opening was quite a succes.

My good friends and hyper-talented guys behind studio[mode] – Gil Akos and Ronnie Parsons – have just launched mode[lab], the lab component of their studio. In their own words: mode[lab] “is conceived of as a laboratory and serves as a knowledge base for design research and experimentation. The laboratory is distributed in nature and operates across multiple time-scales and locations ranging from intensive workshops to design studios throughout North America and Europe.
Our primary objective is to discover novel and inventive design solutions through the identification of key concepts relevant to contemporary architectural discourse and the development of related maps of action.”
My good friend Hayley from EFGH just sent me these pics of a sneak-peek from Sunday at the (soon to open) High Line project by Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
Kudos of course to everyone involved in the project, a refreshing addition to a park-starved section of the city.
