Gestalten Pavilion featured on Highsnobiety. "The selection is impressive and puts the store for us at the fore front of design concept stores in the city and beyond. (...) Simply put, the new Gestalten Pavilion might just be our favorite new store in Berlin."
Spontaneous Interventions, the official U.S. presentation at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at last year's Venice Biennale, now comes to the Chicago Cultural Center. Curated by Cathy Lang Ho, the exhibition is devoted to the growing movement of architects, designers, artists, and everday citizens who act on their own initiative in order to bring improvements to the urban realm, creating new opportunities and amenities for the public.
Cathy Lang Ho explains: “Our goal is to use the exhibition as a framework for understanding a larger movement, in which citizens all over the world are devising and implementing clever, low-barrier urban interventions to make their cities more inclusive, sustainable, pleasurable, and safer.”
As an updated version of the Venice presentation, Spontaneous Interventions now showcases 84 projects at the Chicago Cultural Center, supplementing the most recent local projects. To coincide with the exhibition, an outdoor living room will be set up at Chicago's Millenium Park, serving as outpost and venue for exhibition-related programs. The exhibition's resource room provides the visitor with further reference, including Gestalten's Urban Interventions and Going Public.
