Andrew Berman, 2003

The Center for Architecture is the leading cultural venue for architecture and the built environment in New York City, informed by the complexity of the City's urban fabric and in dialogue with the global community. The Center shares a home with AIA New York and has the unique advantage of drawing upon the ideas and experiences of practicing architects to produce thought-provoking exhibitions, informative public programs, and quality design education experiences. An exhibition titled Scaffolding examines the history and extraordinary potential of scaffolding as a kit-of-parts technology to provide novel forms of inhabitation and access. Installation design by OMA's Shohei Shigematsu; curated by independent researcher Greg Barton. On view October 1, 2017—January 18, 2018.
